Rare total solar eclipse date unveiled: Once-in-20-year astronomical event

Imad Mujahid, a member of the Arab Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences, announced that on Monday, April 8, there will be a solar eclipse visible in the sky.

The eclipse will reach its peak at 9:18 PM Jordan time, but it won't be visible in any Arab or Islamic countries. This event will only be observable in Canada, the United States of America, and Mexico.

Additionally, Mujahid mentioned that the sighting of the Shawwal moon will be possible without the need for any optical aids.

He clarified that solar eclipses like this one have no significant impact on people's lives and are not indicators of natural disasters.
