Its central band will be visible in ANNULAR ECLIPSE form only on the Territory of COCOS (Keeling) islands, in INDONESIA (on the island of Sumatra, the island of Borneo and on the north of the island of Celebes) and in MALAYSIA (on the island of Borneo at the extreme south of the State of Sarawak).
This ANNULAR ECLIPSE will be visible in partial form in SOUTHERN AFRICA, in MADAGASCAR, on the REUNION island, on MAURITIUS, in SOUTH ASIA, in SOUTHEAST ASIA and in OCEANIA.
The Annular eclipses, because of their rarity and the show which they give us, are all the more fascinating to observe.
But it is therefore all the more important to protect one's EYES, during all the various phases of an annular eclipse. (See chapter PROTECT YOUR EYES)
