Gerhana Matahari / Eclipse of the Sun 22 July 2009

Mohd Fairos Asillam, the head of the Angkasa Space Science Research said that the country will be able to observe a partial solar eclipse tomorrow. This will occur from 8.23am to 9.48am in the morning but will be hard to view with the naked eye because only 17.8% of the sun will be eclipsed. He said The northern part of Peninsular Malaysia would be the best place to observe the eclipse. The total solar eclipse, which would last for six minutes and 39 seconds, would pass through Ryuku Islands in Japan and through the Pacific Ocean. The moon’s umbral shadow would begin covering India and then Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China.

Rabbana atina fid dunya hasanah, wa-fil akhirati hasanatau wa qina - Azabannarr.. Amin.
