Here Goes the Sun

Bali and Most of Indonesia to Experience Solar Eclipse on Friday, May 10, 2013

(8/31/2014) The Indonesian Meteorological, Climate and Geophysical Agency (BKMG) has projected that the solar eclipse will take place May 9-10, (UTC) 2013 will pass over much of the central and eastern parts of Indonesia.

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and Sun, partially or totally obscuring the Sun. Annular eclipses cause the sun to appear as a ring (annulus) around the sun.

The length of the phenomenon is dependent on one’s distance from the canter of the eclipse’s track that will pass over Australia and portions of the South Pacific. At the center, the duration of the event will be 6 minutes and 3 seconds.

The event will be seen in most parts of Indonesia (except North Sumatra) and visible during the early morning hours of Friday, May 10, 2013.

The eclipse will also be visible from Bali.

NASA provides the following timings.

Bali Time is UTC + 8 Hours which means the chain of timing for the eclipse will commence from the early morning hours of May 10th in Bali, Indonesia.
