During solar eclipse the effects of positive and negative actions are multiplied by 10,000. 
At these times, at where we are geographically on the Earth one-halve, we may not get to see the partial solar eclipse while at the other half of the Earth the eclipse phenomenon is physically witnessed. However it does not matter if we witness the eclipse or not with naked eyes, as long as we are aware of it. And we are practicing during eclipse, be it chanting, life liberation activities or any other charitable acts in good will and kind deeds, the merits will be multiplying and great – This is a special way in accumulating mass merits, and purifying our negative karma.
Therefore practice is emphasized, even if it's happening in the morning, not to miss such rare opportunity!
