Lei Zhiyong, sponsor of a stargazer fan club, said many places in Lhasa are ideal for observing the eclipse. Among those, the Potala Palace Square and the Village of Gangdelin of Doilungdeqen County command an open vision, therefore are better choices for general observation.

He said, the Niangre Valley is perfect for professional observation and for setting up astronomical telescopes.

Cona County in southeastern Tibet’s Shannan Prefecture will be the first of the whole country to glance at the eclipse, said the newspaper.
