There will be an annular sun eclipse of December 26 (Thursday) and it will be visible in Pakistan, announced the MET Office.
As per details, this eclipse will be a rare and historical event happening after 20 years. This eclipse will be completely different from that of August 1999 because of the ‘albedo effect’ when most radiation did not reach the ground and got deflected back into space due to cloudy skies.
However, this time the skies will be clear hence, there will be a direct affect of radiation.
People have been instructed not to look at the sun with their naked eyes during the eclipse as it may cause permanent eye damage or even blindness.
According to the MET Office, the solar eclipse will be visible in eastern Europe, much of Asia, northern and western Australia, eastern Africa, Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean.
