Annular Solar Eclipse 2019 Tour in Indonesia


What is Annular Solar Eclipse?

An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon.

The name “annular” comes from the Latin word for ring, “annulus.” These eclipses are named for their darkest, or maximum, point even if it only lasts less than a second. If the characteristic ring of fire is visible from even just one location, the whole eclipse is called an annular solar eclipse.

In 26 December 2019 Indonesia will be the one of countries that can see the Annular Solar Eclipse!

The Derawan Islands are in the province of East Kalimantan in Indonesia.
