UAE will see a solar eclipse next Sunday
On June 21 the UAE will see a partial solar eclipse that will last three hours.
According to Mohammed Shawkat Awda, the representative for the International Astronomical Centre, the solar eclipse will be visible from all Arab countries outside of Kingdom of Morocco and Mauritania.
A solar eclipse happens when the moon moves between the earth and the sun.
The eclipse will first become visible when passing over Yemen, then Saudi Arabia and Oman, followed by the UAE and other Arab countries.
Keep in mind, looking at the sun – even during a solar eclipse – is incredibly dangerous. Fortunately, the International Astronomical Centre will be broadcasting the eclipse from 8am to 11am UAE time on its social media channels.
