I was curious as to when the eclipse would occur for my area. Found this site: www.timeanddate.com...

For Boston the time of eclipse shows like this: Start Time Sun 4:56 PM End Time Sun 10:49 PM

A six-hour eclipse? Is this right?

Just went here: en.wikipedia.org...

I didn't see anything about length of time, except for it lasting 5 minutes and some seconds somewhere else.

It will be streaming live on Space.coms website. Im from Louisiana and it will start at 8:36pm Central Standard time. I will need to go to a High rise parking tower to see the beginning of it. I wished i was further on the west coast to see this.

It looks like the east coast will miss out. For us right-coasters, the eclipse will occur after sunset.

For me it's rain and clouds from TS Alberto today.

Im having a quick look for info related to a UK viewing It says 21:56 - 03:49 for London on timeandd ate.com a 6 hour window is confusing me, I saw the eclipse in 2000, it was great but over very quickly. Its still quite light here until about 22:30 at least where I live. so heres hoping I will get some sort of effect

Me too. And the links offered by others are just too complicated for me this morning. For some reason my brain feels like it's floating in a fish tank.

I wish I could see this but I am in Florida and we will see nothing.

It isn't visible in all states or countries for those wondering why their area isnt on the list.

This site here says it's not viewable on the east coast of the US and it will be best viewed west of the Appalachian Mountains and even those areas will only see a partial.



The Greatest Eclipse will pass over northern California, Nevada, southwestern Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, southwestern Colorado, an northwest Texas. A partial solar eclipse will be easily viewable in parts of the U.S. that are west of the Appalachian Mountain chain.


It will not be visible from the U.S. East Coast, including Florida (except for the panhandle).

So if you are in the panhandle you might see something but that is it....

I'm waiting for the Venus transit myself! I have a sun filter on my telescope and I hope I can see something with it! I have never used the sun filter so I will have to read up on it first.

If Solar Eclipse happens when moon is closer to earth and hence can at least cover some area with complete darkness is Total Eclipse. However, when moon is quite distant and can't create complete darkness is Annular Solar Eclipse.

In Total Solar Eclipse, the sun is not at all visible, however, in Annular Solar Eclipse, sun is visible on complete circumference on moon.

As an analogous example: Suppose your friend (sun) is standing at a distance and observing your TV (earth). The more close you (moon) standing to your TV, more you can hide him from your friends view.

Huh? I just want to know why that site lists the eclipse as lasting for 6 hours.
