As you can see for yourself, Lebanon and part of the Middle East will be “at the end” of the Shadow created by the Solar Eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, the Moon and the Earth are aligned, creating a shadow on the earth. Lebanon  will witness a very partial solar eclipse. Here’s how the sun will be affected.

As you can see, it won’t be spectacular. If you’re in UK or France, the eclipse will be much larger. On the Faroe Islands it will be seen as a total eclipse.

Remember, don’t watch the sun directly, it’s dangerous for your eyes, Solar Eclipse or Not!
