Sky-gazers in Azerbaijan are set to enjoy the rare solar eclipse on December 26, which is considered a rare event.

The solar eclipse will begin on December 26, 2019 at 06:30 and finish at 12:06. In Baku, people have an opportunity to witness the annular eclipse before sunrise near the horizon from 08:03 to 08:52.

On December 26, an annular solar eclipse will take place for certain parts of the world. An annular solar eclipse differs from a total solar eclipse as the moon does not completely obscure the Sun as the Moon is farther away from us than normal, making it appear smaller. As a result, the Sun is not totally eclipsed, leaving a ‘ring of fire’ around the edges.
