Where can you see the August Partial Solar Eclipse? | Top Stories
A partial solar eclipse is set to appear next week, treating viewers around the world to a breathtaking display.
Partial solar eclipses occur when the moon, the sun and the Earth don’t align in a straight line, and the moon casts the outer part of its shadow on the sun.
This year, the partial solar eclipse will coincide with a new moon, giving you the chance to see two stunning displays at once.
This partial eclipse will be most visible to people in North/East Europe, North/West Asia, North in North America and the Arctic.
On a worldwide scale, the partial eclipse will last around 3.5 hours, starting at sunrise in northeastern North America and ending at sunset along the Asian Pacific Coast.
In London, the forecast for August 11 is currently ‘sunny’, so your chances of seeing the partial solar eclipse are fairly good.
