This will be an annular Solar Eclipse wherein the moon covers the sun in a way that its edges remain uncovered and thus form a ‘Ring of Fire’. In some other locations, this will be observed as a Partial Solar Eclipse. Another kind of eclipse is a total solar eclipse wherein the moon completely covers the sun.

The Solar Eclipse on 10 June will cover the sun by 97 percent, reported NDTV. The publication further states that the shadow of the moon creates a trail on Earth known as the path of totality. It becomes totally dark during the day for a short while when the moon completely blocks the sun in the path of totality.
