The world will
experience a rare partial solar eclipse called partial eclipse mix on Sunday November the 3rd, the
Arab region will see this Eclipse as a partial eclipse, the Sun will set
eclipsed in eastern parts of the Arab world, such as the Gulf States, Iraq and
most of the Levant region, while the eclipse will begin and end before sunset
in other Arab countries.
The head of the “Islamic
Crescent Observation Project” engineer “Mohammed Shaukat Audeh” stated that the areas where the eclipse
will be seen as a total solar eclipse are located in a narrow strip a few
kilometers long, starting from the North “Atlantic" to “Central Africa”
and ending at the Somali border. Annular Eclipse will begin and will remain so
for (15) seconds, then quickly turn to total Eclipse.
“Audeh” warned the
"return" of looking directly towards the Sun at the time of the
Eclipse, which leads to damage to the eye to the degree of permanent blindness,
and to safely watch the Eclipse using special sunglasses. The "UAE
Astronomy Association" will organize monitoring for those interested to
watch the Eclipse on Sunday in the "Kaser Al Amwaj" area.
