Where to see the last partial solar eclipse of 2018

Solar eclipse will be visible in southern China on Saturday Solar Eclipse (Surya Grahan) 2018 India: Last Eclipse of the Year on 11 August | Know Timing and Duration

The solar Eclipse on 11 August will be the last in the series of phenomena, which astrologers call "the corridor of eclipses 2018".

The next partial solar eclipse will occur on January 6, 2019, which will peak across the North Pacific and Northeast Asia.

Almost a year after the Great American Total Solar Eclipse put on a show for millions of skywatchers across the USA, the moon again made its way in front of the sun for viewers in a different part of the world.

The last total eclipse to occur was the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, which passed across the continental United States and drew millions of onlookers. Then again, the second partial solar eclipse happened on July 13 and was majorly visible over the Southern Ocean amongst Australia and Antarctica.

This weekend's partial solar eclipse will span across many countries in the Northern hemisphere on Saturday, Aug. 11 - becoming what could be the most widely viewed solar eclipse of 2018.

It will be visible from most of Asia, far northern Europe, Iceland, and Greenland, as well as from a slice of northern and eastern Canada.


As noticed, in 2018, sky watchers in the few selected locations on Earth did have three opportunities to observe a solar eclipse. It will last for around 3 hours 30 minutes and start from 1.32pm and last till 5.02pm, but won't be visible across India.

Svalbard, the Norwegian island will be the best place where you can see the eclipse.

But what makes this event special is that it will be seen by more people (25 percent occultation) than any of the others - the previous eclipses saw 10 and 16 percent occultation. People in these regions will be able to witness 65% of the eclipse.

The partial eclipse will be a small eclipse as the moon will cover only the edge of the sun, with much of the star still visible. However, the moon's shadow does not fall at all the places on earth.

"Viewers shouldn't look skyward at the eclipse without protective glasses", said Shi Zhicheng, a member of the Chinese Astronomical Society.
