Residents of Cambodia will have the opportunity to view a partial solar eclipse tomorrow morning, the first visible in the Kingdom since 2010, according to timeanddate.com.
The eclipse, an astronomical event that occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, will begin at 6:36am on Wednesday, March 9, and reach its maximum at 7:33am.
At the peak, about 60 per cent of the sun will be blocked from view.
The eclipse will end at 8:38am.
Most countries in East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific will get a partial view of the action. But Indonesians will be able to glimpse the total eclipse, which will be visible over the islands of Sumatra, Borneo and Sulawesi.
Observers should not attempt to view the eclipse directly, because looking at the sun can cause eye damage.
The next partial solar eclipse visible in Cambodia will occur on December 26, 2019.
