This year will begin with the cosmic spectacle of Solar Eclipse on January 4th, Tuesday which will be visible from Kuwait / GCC / Middle East / N. Africa. The eclipse will be partial but still it will be a great opportunity for science and astronomy enthusiasts to get a glimpse of the real thing.

The eclipse will be visible in Kuwait from 10.40 am, will peak at 12.10 pm, and end by 1:34 pm

A word of advice for those who are a bit superstitious, this is just a cosmic event so do not listen into tales of bad omen about this event.

A word of advice for those who will like to witness the event, PLEASE DO NOT STARE DIRECTLY AT THE SUN DURING THE ECLIPSE PHASE, USE PROTECTIVE EYE-WEAR  AT ALL TIMES TO WITNESS THE EVENT!!
