SUN Annular and LUNAR Eclipses- September 2016 

The SUN Annular Eclipse of 01 September 2016 started from Central Atlantic Ocean to South-East Indian Ocean. The Umbra and Penumbral shadows crossed the following territories: Gabon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania (100% visible), Mozambique, Comoros Archipelago, Madagascar, Reunion and Mauritius.


Météo-Madagascar uploaded the Solar Eclipse Chart a few days before the occurrence of the Event, well explained in Malagasy local language. See picture. The folks of this country are notorious in traditions, superstitions and religion. I am sure that the scientific explanations must have overruled all fears and beliefs.




The Mauritius Meteorological Services (MMS) simply published the date of the occurrence of the SUN Annular Eclipse, without any explanations, as resources are very meagre there. In fact, there are more than a dozen shortcomings/loopholes at the MMS. These have often been mentioned in many articles on this Website and the director is unwilling to solve. This situation has been signalled to the WMO, Geneva accordingly.


However, the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre (secondary state school) appeared to have been better organised and equipped. The Event was announced months beforehand. Telescopes of different sizes were at the disposal of the public on Thursday 01 September. Special protective spectacles were imported by the college from the US to enhance the knowledge of all-young and old, students and civilians. Moreover, the issue was disseminated live by the local Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation in cooperation with local scientists, researchers and astrophysicists. Astrophysical explanations and precautions were clearly given. Other groups of local Astronomers were also interacting with the population in different regions.

The Astral Event started at 12:28:28 hours in Mauritius and ended at 15:44:44 hours. The SUN Eclipse reached a peak at 14:13:43 hours with 90% visibility. The Shadow caused some darkness in Mauritius and surely in all the countries mentioned above, during its passage . This Astronomical Event was followed by most of the populations and was fascinating, given that the next one will occur after more than a century. Obviously, more than two generations of the whole humanity will probably not witness that.

Météo -France uploaded its Chart well before a few days. Reunion 1ere radio station of Reunion Island disseminated live the  same Event by the Astrophysicists of IMCCE Observatoire de Paris, atEtang du Gol, Saint-Louis, Reunion Island.


The UMBRA and PENUMBRAL Shadows invaded Reunion Island as from 12:24:05 hours to end at 15:42:53 hours. The SUN Eclipse was maximum with 98% at 14:10:21 hours.

However, keep watch for the LUNAR Eclipse on Friday 16 September 2016 which will be visible in various countries. See this Video.


Also see the forecast paths of Total, Annular and Hybrid Eclipses for years 2081 to 2100.Credit goes to "Eclipse Predictions by Fred Espenak, NASA's GSFC" for scientific/technical data and information.

Continue to keep watch.
