The inhabitants of the Earth today, August 11, witnessed one of the rarest astronomical events – a partial Eclipse of the Sun.
It lasted about 3.5 hours (from 11:02 to 14:30) and was the last such phenomenon this year.
In particular, the Moon “came over” in the Sun in the Northern part of North America, captured Greenland, passing the Arctic and part of the Atlantic, and touched the territory of Northern and Eastern Europe, and then spread to Northern and Western Asia.
So, a surprising phenomenon could be seen by the inhabitants of Canada, Greenland, Iceland, UK, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and virtually the entire Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, China, North and South Korea.
In Ukraine, unfortunately, on August 11 solar Eclipse was not visible, but we can appreciate its beauty on a photo, which for about an hour publish in social networks people from different parts of the world.
The next solar Eclipse is expected on 5 January 2019.
