People in the UAE can witness the Moon obscuring up to 34 per cent of the Sun from 9.15am to 12.29pm tomorrow, according to the Dubai Astronomy Group, which is organising a viewing at the New World Private School in Tawar.
The eclipse will be most complete - and the Sun almost totally obscured - at 11.06am local time over the Indian Ocean, where it will last 11 minutes, eight seconds. There will not be another solar eclipse that long until December 23, 3043, an astronomer said.

Partial Solar Eclipse visible from South Africa on 15th of January

This coming Friday the 15th of January between about 7 AM to 8 AM those finding themselves in the central to northern parts of South Africa would be able to see the first solar eclipse of 2010. Solar eclipses occur when the moon is between the sun and the earth, obstructing some of the sunlight and casting a shadow on the earth's surface. Those finding themselves in the middle of this shadow will see a total or annular eclipse. As viewed from South Africa though it will only appear as an partial eclipse. Those in the southern parts of South Africa will NOT see the eclipse at all.
