“This eclipse will be seen as a partial eclipse from the southern half of the United States. More specifically, the eclipse will be visible from the USA south of a line extending across the nation from southernmost California to central New Jersey. No eclipse will be seen north of this line which is called the northern eclipse limit.”


More Info Here

The link goes to a page on one of NASA’s many sites, and has lots of info about this event.

This sounds very interesting, and apparently, eclipses of this type do not happen very often. I look forward to seeing pictures.

Edited: ARG! I really meant to post this in the " Space Exploration" forum. Don't suppose a MOD could move it. Sorry!

Thanks for the heads up.

I note that the NASA site says that the next partial solar eclipse wont be until 2012.
(More fodder for the Mayan calendar thing again)

Here is NASA's visual aid showing where the current partial solar eclipse can be viewed.

Your welcome. I accidently came across this on a website that generally doesn't post this sort of info, and I hadn't seen it anywhere else yet. I'm bummed that I wont be in the right location to see this event.

Thanks for posting that graphic. I'm still trying to get used to my new photobucket account. I really don't like that site, but oh well.

You caught that note about the next one, eh? Hehe I thought of mentioning that, but I didn't want to turn a "FYI" thread into yet another Mayan calender arguement.

Wow, I want to see it, but I probably won't be able to. Guess I'll have to wait to 2012.

The black dots are major cities, follow the rings to see if you are "in the zone".

I'm in Northern New Jersey, I'll miss this one, but I've seen two total lunar eclipses in the past two years, the last one was blood red.

Usually solar eclipse here is accompanied by gray overcast skies, nothing to see here folks move along!
Whats up with that!?!
