The eclipse will be visible from the Arctic coast of western Siberia as the sun skirts the northern horizon. Northern parts of China, Siberia, Japan, Scandinavia, Scotland, Iceland, and Canada will all catch a glimpse.
Because the sun doesn’t set in the Arctic parts of the world during this time of year, a solar eclipse is possible at all hours of the day, and this time, the eclipse will happen at midnight local time in Norway (6 p.m. Eastern Time). NASA gives local times for the solar eclipse here.
Partial eclipses occur when the Earth, Moon and Sun are almost perfectly aligned and the Moon blocks out part of the bright surface of the Sun.
We’ll be adding photos of tonight’s eclipse after it happens, but see some of the loveliest photos of past eclipses below:
