Coco:  There is a site that sells Dinar (which will remain nameless in accordance with KTFA policy) which has never been out of stock completely of dinar.  I’ve been checking this site everyday to see availability for years.  Today was the first day they had no denominations available what so ever.  I found this very interesting.

Samson:  Iraq is witnessing the eclipse of the sun .. “The Ring of Fire” shines in the sky

21st June, 2020

On Sunday morning, Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula regions witnessed an annular eclipse of the sun, which is the second in 6 months. This coincides with the first days of summer and the longest day of the year, the day that is called the summer solstice, as the sun reaches its maximum mile north

This event is represented by the phenomenon of the eclipse of the sun, which is characterized this year as an annular eclipse, which is called the “ring of fire”, during which the sun appears more like a golden ring, as the moon covers most of its parts from the middle

This annular eclipse in the region is the second after the annular eclipse witnessed by most countries of the Arabian Peninsula on December 26, 2019

What is a ring of fire or annular eclipse?

The eclipse is a natural astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the moon passes at the same level between the Earth and the sun. On Sunday, June 21, many countries of the world will witness either a partial or annular eclipse with the moon appearing in front of the sun relative to the Earth

An eclipse occurs when the moon is at its maximum point in its orbit around the Earth, which is astronomically known as the “height of the moon”, which means that it will not be able to completely block the sun in some regions, and thus the “ring of fire” phenomenon is formed

The eclipse begins in the Emirates at around 07:45 am in Abu Dhabi, and its climax is at 10:40 am, to be seen partially in most regions of the country

The annular eclipse track begins near the city of Imbuganda in the north-eastern part of the Republic of the Congo at about 08:47 am Emirates time, then goes east through the Democratic Republic of the Congo, southern Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea, before moving to Yemen and southern Saudi Arabia and cutting the Sultanate of Oman heading east to the Pacific, To end up at 12:32 pm Emirates time after a journey of 3 hours and 45 minutes

During its course, an annular eclipse is observed in the regions it passes by up to 98 percent, while the adjacent areas on both sides of the path are partly eclipse  LINK
