Caption: Observing a solar eclipse. Mother and child in Ashgabat (Ashkhabad), Turkmenistan, observing the annular solar eclipse of 29 April 1976. Viewing through a filter protects their eyes and allows them to observe the eclipse safely. This was the most spectacular eclipse seen from this location since the total solar eclipses of 1857 and 1882.
