On December 26th, skywatchers in Saudi Arabia, southern India, and parts of Indonesia will see the Moon pass directly in front of the Sun, creating an annular solar eclipse. Regions seeing, at least, a partial eclipse: East in Europe, Much of Asia, North/West Australia, East in Africa, Pacific, Indian Ocean. An annular solar eclipse is also known as a "Ring of Fire" solar eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 02:29 UTC on December 26, 2019. The maximum point will take place at 05:17 UTC, and the annularity will last for 3 minutes and 40 seconds. At maximum the Moon forms a 'black hole' in the center of the Sun. During an annular solar eclipse, the Moon is farther away from Earth than during a total solar sclipse, so it appears smaller and doen't completely cover the Sun. Be careful when looking directly at the eclipsed Sun. The ring of sunlight during annularity is blindingly bright. Even though as much as 94% of the Sun's disk will be covered, you still need to use a solar filter or some type of projection technique. Enjoy the celestial show!
