Solar Eclipse to Sweep Across Africa and Asia in June
The Moon will cast its shadow over parts of the Eastern Hemisphere in a solar eclipse on the same day as the northern summer solstice.
TAIPEI — The Moon will cast its shadow over parts of the Eastern Hemisphere from Africa and Eastern Europe to the Pacific in a solar eclipse on June 21, on the same day as the Northern Hemisphere's summer solstice.
According to NASA, the annular phase of this solar eclipse — when only the Sun's outer edges are visible around the Moon in a fiery ring — will cross the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Pakistan, India, China and Taiwan.
People thousands of kilometers north and south of this area will be able to see varying stages of a partial eclipse.
