Singapore Science Centre Streams Rare Eclipse ‘Live’ On Facebook
A full eclipse is as rare as a completely haze-free year in Singapore, so the news of one happening today (26 Dec) is generating quite the buzz.
If this is the first time you’re hearing about it, we forgive you. The Christmas hangover must be pretty strong.
But don’t panic and start Googling ways to view the phenomenon safely from home on your day off, or from your sad office window. The Singapore Science Centre has got your back.

Staring at the eclipse directly can hurt your eyes the same way seeing your crush with someone else does.
You either need fancy equipment like eclipse glasses, or a pinhole camera which you can supposedly DIY at home. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Luckily for us last-minute rangers, the Singapore Science Centre will be streaming the “ring of fire” ‘live’ and in high definition (HD) on Facebook as it happens.

Don’t miss out on the golden opportunity
Seeing the Moon covering the Sun’s center and leaving a fiery ring around the ages is such a dramatic and rare event you wouldn’t want to miss.
That’s what an annular eclipse is, for those who still don’t know.
But it’s best that you go see it for yourself. As much as words can lull you, nothing beats stunning visuals.
