Eclipse visible in Bangui – Jan 15, 2010 Annular Solar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like in Bangui (weather permitting).

This annular solar eclipse is fully visible in Bangui.

Observers there can experience the “ring of fire” that is characteristic for this kind of solar eclipse. This is a rare and spectacular event that can only be experienced along a relatively narrow strip on the Earth's surface. The eclipse is also visible in other areas, but the Moon does not move centrally in front of the Sun there and the “ring of fire” is not visible.
