The solar eclipse of January 15, 2010 is an annular eclipse of the Sun with a magnitude of 0.9190. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring Earth’s view of the Sun. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, causing the sun to look like an annulus (ring), blocking most of the Sun’s light. An annular eclipse will appear as partial eclipse over a region thousands of miles wide.
The eclipse will last a total of one and a half hours and will occur Friday, January 15, 2010 at 10:45am Maldivian time, with the moon overlapping the sun at 12:25pm local Maldivian time (12:45pm to 2:25pm local Bangkok time, 1:45pm to 3:25pm in Hong Kong, 11:25am to 12:55pm in Mumbai, 1:45pm to 3:25pm in Shanghai, 1:45pm to 3:25pm in Singapore, 2:45pm to 4:20pm in Tokyo.)
Streamed from the highest point in the capital, viewers coming to this page at 10:45am Maldivian time will observe the sun as it is slowly erased by the the moon, covering the city in darkness.
The eclipse starts at the Central African Republic, traverses Camaroon, Congo and Uganda, passes through Nairobi, Kenya, and enters the Indian Ocean and reachest greatest eclipse.
