No, sadly this won't be visible in the UK, I suppose there is always next time.

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

6 hours from "first contact" to "last contact". Totality (in this case "annularity") lasts a few minutes, if you are in a location in which it occurs.

Boston will not see much of anything.

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.



strange because the moon is actually very close to earth right now. it is moving away from its max perigee for this year.

probly because the moon is closer than it was for the total eclipse taking longer to pas throught the suns path 6 hours seems along time though

According to one link it looks like I will be seeing it right around sunset at 63%... but it is cloudy outside so I am going to miss it.

I remember the first solar eclipse I saw. It freaked me out, I was around 12 years old and when the sky went dark and I could see all of the upper cloud formations that you don't normally see and the sun going dark... It was a very freaky experience for me, I loved it!


Gonna miss this one due to cloud cover, that blows.

Yeah, even though they may have posted it, we want immediate info because it's happening within the next few hours so I'm flagging it.


Here at my Lake Tahoe,California,USA,Earth,Milky Way location we have perfect Blue skies. No distortion from those pesky "contrails" that cover the skyline.

Perfect Veiwing Sky here at 6400 Ft. above sea level.

I went to the local welding supply shop last week to get a #14 filter to view the eclipse (80% here in the NW)

They were out, as was every welding supply shop around.

It's been raining here all day... best 5 bucks I never spent.
