Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - The last time such an eclipse could be viewed from the UAE was in 1847.
The UAE witnessed the last solar eclipse of the decade today, a spectacle that hasn't occurred in the country since 1847.
People in the large number turned up across the country where the special arrangement has been made for safe observation of the solar eclipse with all precautionary measures.
The event is called an annular solar eclipse and occurs when the moon covers majority of the sun, except its outer edges - creating a bright solar ring around the moon, often called a 'ring of fire'.
