 Annular Solar Eclipse of 2020 June 21
 from Oman, India or China (Tibet)

To observe the 2020 June 21 annular eclipse, I will likely travel to Oman because it’s the perfect choice both for the weather and the beauty of the country. Trying to view a deeper and nearly pearled annular, yet not even close to ASE 1966 in Greece, from the summit of the Hardeol peak (Temple of God) at 7,151 meters (23,461 feet) in India is enticing although the odds of succeeding are low because of the extremely high elevation, remoteness and pre-monsoon potentially unstable weather; this peak has only been climbed twice. To observe from Tibet is also enticing.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
