Bandar Seri Begawan – People in this country will have the opportunity to witness the rare sun eclipse on Thursday morning, April 20, 2023. The cosmic event will be expected to begin at 11.06 a.m. and end at 1.43 p.m.
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon is perfectly aligned between the sun and the earth. During the partial eclipse, the moon never completely covers the sun.
The phenomenon of a partial solar eclipse will last for 2 hours 37 minutes, where throughout this celestial event, the Moon will obscure a small fraction of the sun. During the greatest eclipses, i.e. at 12.24 p.m., nearly 34 percent of the sun will be covered by the Moon.
People who wish to observe this phenomenon are advised not to look at the sun directly. Some of the safe methods of watching the sun eclipse are employed by using Shade 14 Welding Glasses, solar filters or by telescope projection.
Solar eclipse of the Sun is an uncommon phenomenon. The previous solar eclipse in Brunei happened on 21 Jun 2020. The next phenomenon of solar eclipse will occur again in Brunei on Thursday, 22 July 2028.
