n annular solar eclipse will occur on Friday, January 15, and will be the longest solar eclipse in duration since 1992.

Annular solar eclipse occurs when the sun and the moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the moon's shadow is smaller than that of the visible disc of the sun. The covered sun, therefore, appears as a 'Ring of Fire', with its rays appearing spread out from the outline of the moon.
“This eclipse will be visible from a track that goes across central Africa, the Indian Ocean, and eastern Asia.
The maximum eclipse occurs in the middle of the Indian Ocean, but the annular phase will still be seen from either Africa or Asia,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its astronomical diary for January prepared by PAGASA Administrator Dr. Prisco Nilo.

The path of the moon's shadow begins in Africa at 10.44 a.m. and passes through Chad, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Kenya, and Somalia. After leaving Africa, the path crosses the Indian Ocean.
The central path then continues into Asia through the extreme southern part of India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, and China. A partial eclipse will be seen within the much broader path, including entire India, or Bangladesh.
