The “Ring of Fire” solar eclipse is approaching Thursday, June 10, and that’s when you can watch it.
By time and date, the eclipse will be partially viewable from the United States, Northern Canada, Europe, Northern Asia, Russia, and Greenland. You can watch live online with several live webcasts and also look outside if you live in one of the visible and safe places to travel – just make sure to protect your eyes properly.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes in front of the Sun from our planet’s point of view. Solar eclipses in general – relatively rare – occur when the moon covers the entire sun; The moon’s orbit is tilted by the sun and is not always perfectly aligned. A “ring of fire” or annular eclipse occurs when a lunar eclipse approaches the Moon’s furthest point from Earth, so the Moon appears smaller in the sky than the Sun and does not interfere with the entire solar disk.
What time is the solar eclipse?
The first places to see the partial phase of the eclipse, where the Moon is “bitten” by the sun, will be at 4:12 AM EDT (GMT 0812); local time will vary depending on your location. If you live north and east of a line that runs through Edmonton, Alberta, Des Moines, Iowa, Savannah, Georgia, you might see a partial eclipse.
The circular eclipse will begin to appear in the lucky northern areas that can see 05:49 (0949 GMT) EDT depending on the time and date. The maximum eclipse will occur at 06:41 EDT (1041 GMT) in the North Pole, where the circular phase will last approximately 3 minutes 51 seconds.
The trail will be best viewed in Canada, as the trail starts from the north shore of Lake Superior and is highly visible in the Canadian Shield in northwestern Ontario and the Canadian Arctic tundra. Unfortunately, the Canadian border has been closed to junk travel due to the pandemic, so residents of the United States won’t be able to see the “ring of fire” in person.
The final inspection of the circular eclipse will be performed at 7:33 AM EDT (1133 GMT), and the last visible view of the partial eclipse will be seen at 9:11 AM EDT (1311 GMT).
If you can’t catch this eclipse for some reason, according to NASA, the larger eclipse of 2021 – total solar eclipse in Antarctica and partial solar eclipse in South Africa and the South Atlantic – will occur on December 4. But you see, the eclipse is visible in parts of the United States and in cities around the world.
The following solar eclipse charts offer viewing possibilities in various cities in the United States and around the world. If the maximum eclipse occurs before sunrise, the magnitude of the eclipse – the percentage of the sun covered by the moon – is indicated by an asterisk (*).
