An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far away to completely cover the Sun’s disk. This eclipse will be visable from Saudi Arabia, southern India, and parts of Indonesia. In Europe, North-West Australia and parts of Asiawill see a partial eclipse.

Viewing the Sun during partial and annular eclipses (and during total eclipses outside the brief period of totality) requires special eye protection, or indirect viewing methods if eye damage is to be avoided. The Sun’s disk can be viewed using appropriate filtration to block the harmful part of the Sun’s radiation. Sunglasses do not make viewing the Sun safe. Only properly designed and certified solar filters should be used for direct viewing of the Sun’s disk. Especially, self-made filters using common objects such as a floppy disk removed from its case, a Compact Disc, a black colour slide film, smoked glass, etc. must be avoided.
