Mexico: The sun is red in the ring. As the moon's shadow obscured the sun for five minutes, a rare celestial spectacle was seen from Earth, with huge crowds turning out to witness the longest solar eclipse in a thousand and a half centuries. The solar eclipse was visible in North America. People flocked to Canada, Mexico and Texas to witness the rare celestial spectacle.

It will not appear again in India. The total solar eclipse was almost entirely visible in Mexico. The phenomenon was seen off the Pacific coast of Mexico around 2pm local time. The moon completely covered the sun for about four and a half minutes, the BBC reported.
