Annular Solar Eclipse : Friday 15 January 2010
What You Will See
The path of the moon's shadow will produce an Annular Solar Eclipse which begins in western Central African Republic. Because of the Moons large distance from Earth at this time it produces an unusually wide path of annularity. Traveling eastward, the shadow quickly sweeps through Uganda, Kenya, and southern Somalia, the Indian Ocean, the Maldive Islands including the capital city Male.

When the it reaches Asia the central line passes directly between the southern tip of India and northern Sri Lanka. Both regions lie within the path where maximum annularity lasts 10 minutes 15 seconds Quickly sweeping over the Bay of Bengal the shadow reaches Burma where the central line duration is 8 minutes 48 seconds.

From there the central line enters China. The shadow crosses the Himalayas through Yunnan and Sichuan provinces Chongqing lies directly on the central line. Racing through parts of Shaanxi and Hubei provinces, the antumbra's speed increases as the duration decreases. In its final moments, the antumbra travels down the Shandong Peninsula and leaves Earth's surface.

A partial eclipse will be visible from Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Indonesia.

A detailed list of places, times and animations showing what you can expect to see can be found on www.eclipse.org.uk.

Manufacturers safety endorsement
Our safe solar eclipse viewing glasses have received an independent safety endorsement from the foremost authority on eye safety during solar eclipses. Dr. Ralph Chou, professor of optometry at University of Waterloo, developed the eye safety standards for viewing solar eclipses.

"SolarSkreen has had an excellent reputation for more than 25 years as a safe filter material for observing the sun and solar eclipses. I recommend it for both beginning and experienced solar observers." Dr. Ralph Chou.

Safety
WARNING : Never observe the Sun with the naked eye or a telescope, binoculars, camera or other optical device. Doing so will seriously damage your eye sight and may lead to permanent blindness. Both the eye and artificial optical devices concentrate the extremely strong ultraviolet light from the Sun onto the retina. This can permanently destroy the retina's ability to detect light. To safely observe a solar eclipse you must use CE approved safety solar eclipse glasses such as those on sale here or use indirect methods such as pin hole projection onto a suitable surface.
Please note these solar eclipse glasses are not suitable for use with optical devices such as telescopes, binoculars or cameras, you need stronger and larger solar eclipse filters than these to protect you from the magnified sun light when using optical devices.
You will put your eye sight at risk by only wearing regular sunglasses or shades to directly view the sun.
