ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Parts of Southeast Asia will witness a total solar eclipse lasting for over a minute in every location on its path, revealed astronomers from NASA. Eclipses can be viewed using a solar-filtered telescope, eclipse glasses or a pinhole projector.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s shadow falls on Earth. The shadow comprises two concentric cones called the umbra and the penumbra.

The 100% solar eclipse will only be visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. However partial sight will be available for South Asian countries, Australia and in East Asian region.

Pakistan will not witness its first solar eclipse of 2016.
