07/12/2018 – Ephemeris – A partial solar eclipse today will be visible from south Australia

July 12, 2018 Comments off

Ephemeris for Thursday, July 12th. Today the Sun will be up for 15 hours and 18 minutes, setting at 9:27, and it will rise tomorrow at 6:09. The Moon is new today, and won’t be visible.

There’s a minor partial solar eclipse late tonight our time

for extreme southern Australia and Tasmania. This will be followed in two weeks with a total lunar eclipse for mostly Africa and Asia. Two weeks and a day after that their will be a partial solar eclipse from northeastern Canada to Asia. When is the next solar eclipse visible here in northern Michigan? That would be June 10, 2021. The Sun will rise with the eclipse more than half over with the Moon taking a big bite out of the left side of the Sun. It will be all over by 6:40 a.m. However, for Canada north of Minnesota, the Sun will rise as a ring of fire because the Moon won’t be big enough to block the entire disk of the Sun. But on April 8, 2024 the Sun will be totally eclipsed in the US from Texas to Maine.

The times given are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan. They may be different for your location.
