Taipei, March 7 (CNA) A total solar eclipse that will occur Wednesday will be
aired live by the Taipei Astronomical Museum on its website because it will be only partially visible in Taiwan.
The partial eclipse that can be seen in Taiwan will be between 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. that day, the museum said.
The museum will work with other observatories around the world that can observe the eclipse to provide a real-time broadcast of the event on the site http://eclipse.tam.gov.tw, enabling the public to follow the eclipse’s progress and compare its changes in different areas.
This will be the first solar eclipse since May 21, 2012. The next eclipse will come on Jan. 6, 2019, it said.
The total eclipse will start from the Indian Ocean, and pass through parts of Indonesia, including Sumatra, Borneo and Sulawesi, before entering the Pacific. [FULL STORY]
