Partial solar eclipse – The most beautiful thing in 2015

The most beutiful thing happened in Friday March 20, 2015.


A total solar eclipse took place today in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard (Norway), and a partial solar eclipse in Europe, North and East Asia, North and West Africa, Western North America, the Atlantic and the Arctic.

According to Wikipedia a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide.

The eclipse started at 07:41 UTC and ended at 11:50 UTC.

The next solar eclipse visible in Europe will occur in 2026.
