The eclipsing sun should not be seen without protective and safety equipment, it said. The planetarium said, due to restrictions in force for COVID-19, no arrangement is made for the public to view the eclipse from its campus.

However, the planetarium is making arrangements for an online webcast of the partial solar eclipse and it can be seen at www. taralaya.org, its Facebook and Youtube channel subject to favourable weather conditions, it added.
