Solar Eclipse in Libya ليبيا (Great Libyan Jamahiriya)
Many rumors have spread over the past months in various distribution lists on the Internet. Those rumors, regarding the organization of the 2006 March 29 Total Solar Eclipse in Libya, have caused havoc for many tour operators in Libya. In order to stop all these rumors, the first newsletter was published on September 15, 2005. The second newsletter is the official announcement by the Libyan authorities of the viewing sites’ construction attribution.
