How much is a solar eclipse?
The first places where you can see the partial phase of the eclipse – where the moon bites off the sun – will occur at 4:12 AM EDT (0812 GMT); local time will vary depending on where you are. You can see a partial eclipse if you live north and east of a line that runs approximately from Edmonton, Alberta, to Des Moines, Iowa, down Savannah, Georgia.
The annular eclipse will begin to be seen in those northern regions that are lucky enough to see it at 5:49 a.m. EDT (0949 GMT), according to the time and date. The maximum eclipse will occur at 6:41 EDT (1041 GMT) in the North Pole region, where the ring phase will last approximately 3 minutes and 51 seconds.
The season will be best seen in Canada, as the trail begins on the north shore of Lake Superior and is highly visible in the Canadian Shield of northwestern Ontario and the Canadian Arctic tundra. Unfortunately, those living in the United States will not be able to see the “ring of fire” in person, as the border with Canada is closed for minor travel due to the pandemic.
The last view of the annular eclipse will occur at 7:33 EDT (1133 GMT), while the last visible location of the partial eclipse will see it at 9:11 EDT (1311 GMT).
If you can’t catch this eclipse for some reason, the larger eclipse of 2021 – a total solar eclipse in Antarctica and a partial eclipse in South Africa and the South Atlantic – will occur on December 4, according to NASA. But if you can see it, this is where the eclipse is seen from parts of the United States and world cities
