Solar eclipse will be visible in Bahrain next month

A solar eclipse will be visible in Bahrain next month.

The natural phenomenon will take place between 5.32am and 7.49am on December 26, with the maximum eclipse taking place at 6.36am.

Unfortunately, watchers in Bahrain won’t be able to see the annular phase of the eclipse, where just a ring of sun is visible, as it takes place just minutes after sunrise.

But the partial eclipse is still quite a sight, so you’re going to want to set your alarms early to catch it.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Earth, the Sun and the moon are aligned, at the Sun is completely blocked by the moon’s shadow.

You should never look directly at the Sun as it can damage your eyes, but there are two different ways you can view a solar eclipse safely.

You can buy a pair of eclipse glasses that will protect your eyes, or you can make your own box projector to watch the moon move across the path of the sun safely.

Head to Time and Date for more tips on how to watch the eclipse safely next month.
