According to NASA, the moon will pass in front of the sun today and will produce a ring of fire in the sky for some of our neighbours up north.

If you happen to be in Tanzania, you’ll have the best view, but South Africans can still experience a partial eclipse. The peak of the eclipse will be at 11:02 and will end at 12:38.

Although eclipses happen twice or three times a year, they aren’t always visible everywhere, and the next visible one we’ll get to see in Africa will be in 2030.

Remember to not look directly at the sun during the eclipse.

You can track the path of the eclipse on the interactive map here or watch the partial eclipse, hosted live on eNCA here.
