A partial solar eclipse will occur on Thursday around 11.45., when the Moon touches the upper right edge of the Sun. The invisible lunar disk will then slowly cut an increasing part of the Sun, until approximately 12.30 pm, when the maximum phase of the whole phenomenon occurs, informs portal iMeteo.sk.

In full beauty

At the end of the maximum phase, the Moon will slowly leave the solar disk and disappear completely from it around 13.30.

In Slovakia, partly cloudy to clear weather is expected on Thursday around noon, so in many Slovak localities we will be able to enjoy a partial solar eclipse in full beauty.

In the northern districts, for example in the area of ​​Žilina, the Moon covers 5% of the solar disk, in the area of ​​Bratislava 4% and in the southernmost parts of Slovakia about 3.5%.

Important Notice!

Partial solar eclipse do not observe with the naked eye – it is dangerous and there is a risk of permanent eye damage. It is clearly necessary to provide special glasses with suitable filters, which can also be obtained in observatories.

For an even better experience, this phenomenon can be observed with suitable binoculars.
