Mangaluru: St Aloysius College (Autonomous), Mangaluru is facilitating interested students and the public to view the biggest astronomical event of the year – ‘Annular Solar Eclipse’ on 26th December 2019 in the college.

The Association of Friends of Astronomy, Goa is also joining the College to facilitate the eclipse observation with special instruments and indirect methods. As directly viewing the Sun may cause permanent damage to the retina of the eye, they have advised the general public to not view the Sun directly. Indirect methods and solar filters (not sun goggles) must be used to view the Sun they said.

The solar eclipse can be witnessed between 8.00 am to 11.00 am. The annular eclipse is expected to occur at 9.24 am. Mangaluru will be the most suitable region in this coastal belt to view this solar eclipse. It will be a memorable moment for all those interested in astronomical events.

This activity has been organized by the Department of Physics and is open to all.
