Stargazers in the UAE were in for a treat on Tuesday as the country witnessed a partial solar eclipse.

The celestial spectacle reached its peak at about 3:51 pm and ended by 5:00 pm.

A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, and the three are not perfectly aligned.

As a result, the Moon will appear to cover a portion of the Sun.

The next partial solar eclipse in the UAE will not be visible until 2027.
