This coming June 21st, there will be a partial solar eclipse that will be visible in the entire Philippines as well as some of our neighboring Asian and Middle East countries.
But some parts of our Asian neighbor will be fortunate enough able to witness an annular solar eclipse like in Chiayi, Taiwan as well as Xiamen, China.
Unfortunately due to the Covid 19 pandemic that struck the entire world this year, the chance to travel to the annular eclipse path are mostly restricted because of this unfortunate event that is still affecting most of the world. Thus I would only be discussing the partial solar eclipse event that will be visible in some major cities only.
WARNING: PLEASE USE SAFE SOLAR VIEWER OR FILTER TO OBSERVE THE SUN OR WILL CAUSE PERMANENT EYE DAMAGE OR BLINDNESS!!!
Below are eclipse circumstances for some major cities in the Philippines. All are in Philippine Standard Time (PST +8 GMT). To view the solar eclipse simulation on the cities below, please click on the name of the city. Thank you!
