Almost once a year the unique phenomenon of celestial beauty called total solar eclipse takes place in different parts of the world.
Solar eclipse is an astronomical event, in which the Moon, being between the Earth and the Sun, partly or totally covers the Sun from observers on the Earth. This time, Moon will pass in front of the Sun covering it totally, which as a result will make it possible for us to see the eclipse in the outer layer of the solar atmosphere. It is an event of great scientific interest since it determines the data of the Space Weather (telecommunications, space missions, GPS systems, etc.).
The eclipse will take place on November 13 and reach its maximum phase at 22:13 GMT, the duration of which will be 4 minutes 2 seconds.
The area that will get the best line of sight is middle and subtropical latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere. Observers in the southern part of the Pacific Ocean – New Zealand, Indonesia, Oceania and other countries – will be able to enjoy the partial eclipse, while the capital of the solar eclipse will be Cairns city of Queensland in Northern Australia. It is the only major city where it will be possible to see the Sun, totally covered by the Moon.
