    Default Solar Eclipse on Friday 20th

    There will be a solar eclipse on Friday 20th. (Assuming we have the weather, and the sky is not obscured)
    The maximum Eclipse will be at 09:45

    Given good conditions, what the eclipse will look like from Ireland.



    Totality can only be seen on two landmasses, the Faroe Islands midway between Scotland and Iceland, and the arctic archipelago of Svalbard. Observers in those locations will see between two and two-and-a-half minutes of totality.
    Away from the path of the total eclipse the Sun is only partly obscured by the Moon. This time the partial eclipse is visible across a large part of the northern hemisphere, including the whole of Europe, Greenland, Newfoundland, northern Africa and western Asia.

    The eclipse will be closer to total the further north you are in Ireland.

    Partial Eclipse begins 08:26 The Moon touches the Sun's edge.
    Maximum Partial Eclipse 09:31 Moon is closest to the centre of the Sun.
    Partial Eclipse ends 20 Mar, 10:39

    The timings will vary slightly where you are in Ireland. Best view should be in North Donegal. Assuming we can see the sky at all

    I've seen total solar eclipse about 16-18 years ago in my country, it was late July/August perfect weather conditions, something I won't forget in my entire life.
    Good bye Ireland!

    Unfortunately I have never seen a total eclipse. It is certainly on my to-do list to travel to see one.
    Friday 20th event will only be a partial eclipse, but should be worth seeing assuming we get a clear sky.
