Dr Beshir Marzouk added: "Partial solar eclipse will be seen from northeast Asia, Japan, Pacific Ocean, Russia, Magnolia, parts of USA". However, the highlight of the year will be the total solar eclipse on July 2, 2019, which will occur over the South Pacific, Chile and Argentina.
During the eclipse, shadow will be seen around the sun. Out of five, there will be two total solar eclipses, one partial lunar eclipse, one partial solar eclipse and one lunar eclipse. While partial solar eclipse will not be seen from Qatar, countries of GCC and all countries of Arabic area.
The partial solar eclipse will take place on January 6 starting 23:34:08 in UTC, which stands for Coordinated Universal Time. It will not be visible in India, Pakistan, Europe and North America. The phenomenon makes the Sun appear as a disk.
Traditionally, eclipses are considered to be inauspicious as the Sun is not clearly visible during a solar eclipse and could lead to an increase in bacteria and germs. National Geographic reports that the entire show, from partial coverage before and after the eclipse, will last for over three hours so it's going to be quite the fantastic show. The partial solar eclipse requires the same precautions as a total solar eclipse.
♦ According to Inuit folklore, Sun goddess Malina walks way after a fight with Moon god Annigan and when Annigan catches up with his sister, it causes a solar eclipse.
A partial solar eclipse is when the Moon covers only a certain portion of the Sun.
