Today, on 12h 47m 36s UTC, Which is in less than one hour from now, the moon will pass between Earth and the sun, creating a hybrid solar eclipse which will last for about one minute.

This is the range of visibility of the eclipse:

The solar eclipse will be visible to those in east of America and Africa, and also Spain.

Remember to never watch the sun directly with your naked eyes, use filters.

So keep your heads up!


At Time's End,

Swan

Actually it's happening right now on the east coast of the US, there is about 15 minutes left.

Check it out while it lasts.

I was up but the sun didn't come over the horizon until like 6:30 so I don't see how anyone on the east coast saw it. I was already at the grocery store at seven and the sun was still low in the east.

"Warning" sounds a bit melodramatic... and for the record, a "hybrid" eclipse happens when it goes from annular to total. An annular eclipse is a "ring" eclipse; the Moon is too far away to cover the entire solar disk. On rare occasions, such as this one, the Moon's distance is such that its shadow grows during the course of the eclipse.

What's the warning? That's what caught my attention to look at the thread.

Is it just the well known fact that it's bad for your eyes to stare at the sun?

I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!


I looked for 20 minutes after the 18:47 UTC target, but NOTHING happened!! No fanstastic eclipse, not even a partial eclipse...

Guess Quebec will never have any eclipse....

Simply wondered why the title included the word "warning".

It's about time total solar ecplipses stopped happening almost exclusively over the Pacific, the Atlantic, Africa, or other such obscure places, and started happening over Europe and USA!

*feels left out*
