Uganda has been identified as the best place to spot the total phase of this solar eclipse come November 3, 2013. — At 4:10 PM on Sunday, November 3, 2013 Uganda is expected to be one of the few places in the world that shall experience a historical brighter and clear view of the #Eclipse. Come November 3 Uganda will be the world’s focus center as it experiences a total eclipse.

Uganda lies on the path of a Hybrid Solar Eclipse – which makes the Pearl of Africa a viable place for all scientists, explorers, adventurists, photojournalists and all lovers of nature to converge and experience this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Pakwach in Nebbi district in West Nile has been identified as the best place to spot the total phase of this solar eclipse alongside other towns like Arua, Soroti, Gulu and Masindi. However, a partial solar eclipse shall still be visible in Kampala (weather permitting).

A total eclipse occurs when the dark silhouette of the moon completely obscures the intensely bright light of the sun, allowing the much fainter solar corona to be visible.

During the maximum phase of the eclipse, the sun’s disk is completely blocked. The sun’s faint corona is then safely revealed to the naked eye. You’re all welcome to the Most Pristine Destination in Albertine Rift Region – The Pearl of Africa.
