He said the eclipse will be around21% in Damascus and will occur during sunset, finishing minutes before the sun sinks below the horizon, starting at 3:13 PM, peaking at 3:58 and ending at 4:38.

Al-Asiri warned against staring at the sun during the partial eclipse as this is harmful to the human eye and may result in permanent loss of vision, noting that the Society will specify areas for monitoring this event using special goggles and telescopes.
