Mangaluru, Dec 23, 2019: With the objective of dispelling several myths associated with solar eclipse, members of Aid Without Religion Trust and Dakshina Kannada Rationalists Association led by Prof Narendra Nayak have decided to swim at the Mangaluru City Corporation Swimming Pool on December 26 during the time of the solar eclipse.
This is aimed to allay the fears and misconceptions regarding solar eclipses that exposure to sunlight during eclipse could cause skin disease and physical harm.
Members will also watch the eclipse through specially procured glasses and also consume food during the time.
Those interested can also come to the venue and watch the eclipse through the solar watching devices. Magic Munna, a close up magician of repute will also perform during this time. The programme will be held between 8.30 am to 9.30 am, says a press release from Prof Narendra Nayak.
