Weekend solar eclipse to project 'ring of fire'


(CNN) -- Thousands of people are planning viewing parties in the western United States for Sunday's annular solar eclipse, a rare event in which the sun will appear as a thin ring behind the moon.

The eclipse will be visible on a path from northwestern Texas through New Mexico, northeastern Arizona, southern Utah, Nevada, northern California and southwestern Oregon late in the day on May 20.

The eclipse actually begins in Asia on the morning of May 21, when it will be visible in southern Japan and southern China.

"I recommend anyone who has the chance to see this, because while they do happen occasionally, it's a fairly rare event," said Jeffrey Newmark, a solar physics specialist with NASA. "It's a neat thing to see."

Are there some precautions for viewing the solar eclipse? Like wearing sun glasses or something? I remember from childhood that its not recommended to look at it directly.

Salam,

Yup sis click on the link it gives more info!

Newmark said people should not peer up at the sky to view the solar event without special viewing equipment. Viewing the sun with the naked eye can cause blindness.

Eclipse glasses, welder's goggles or an astronomer's filter made for sun viewing are recommended if people want to look skyward.

Another way to view the eclipse is by using binoculars and telescopes to project an image of it on the ground, Newmark said. Point the binoculars or telescopes at the sun -- without looking through the lenses -- and aim the other end onto a piece of paper or cardboard.

So I guess it won't be visible in NYS.. Cool  But Praises are to Allah, and in each and every such event there is a sign from Allah for those who ponder over it..
