REUNION IS THE BEST PLACE TO SEE THE TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN TODAY
(Posted 01st September 2016)
The countdown has begun in earnest now. The island of Reunion is according to leading global experts the best place in the world to observe the annular eclipse that will take place on 01st of September. For astronomers or professionals or in fact anyone interested, who do not have the opportunity to experience this unique event on the island, Ile de la Reunion Tourisme, in short IRT, offers the opportunity to observe the astronomical year event live on their website www.reunion.fr . from 12:20 local time, when the Moon gets between Earth and the Sun. This will leave most of Reunion under a twilight sky. From 2:08 p.m. onwards then will the perfect alignment of the moon and the sun leave just a narrow ring of light appear in the sky. It is on the southwest coast of the island, between the Pointe du Gouffre to the Salt Pond and the beaches of Saint-Pierre, where this extraordinary show will be the most amazing for the lucky ones who will witness this fascinating phenomenon live.
