Partial solar eclipse around 12.19 pm – Belgium

by archyw

An annular solar eclipse will take place high in the north today/Thursday. In Belgium, the celestial phenomenon will be partially visible.

If you want to admire the phenomenon, you should wear eclipse glasses to protect your eyes.

At 11:17 a.m. GMT, the moon and the sun will make contact for the first time. The sun is then at an altitude of 50 degrees in the east-southeast. As the sun moves higher in the sky in a more southeasterly direction, the eclipse also gradually increases. At 12.19 pm, the maximum eclipse can finally be observed, which will cover about 26 percent of the solar diameter from Brussels. At that moment the sun is already at an altitude of 58 degrees. Then the moon gradually disappears from before the sun. At 1:25 p.m., the moon makes its last contact with the sun and the eclipse is over.

The phenomenon can be seen from Europe, North America and Asia. The solar eclipse can be seen as annular in Canada, Greenland and Russia. The point of maximum eclipse is in Baffin Bay between Northern Canada and Greenland. That is where the sun’s coverage is greatest. Viewed from there, 97 percent of the solar diameter or 89 percent of its surface will be covered by the moon.

If you want to observe the solar eclipse, you must protect your eyes with a sun filter. Eclipse glasses are a simple and safe method.
