Giddy up for the Solar Eclipse

Tomorrow we will witness a total solar eclipse!

I am kind of excited as I have never actually ever witnessed one first hand... This solar eclipse is especially special since it's happening after 15 years and, get this, it will coincide with spring equinox as well as supermoon... Now, how cool is THAT!!!

It will be mostly visible from most of the northern hemisphere (see the map below). Well, the total solar eclipse is mostly visible from Northern parts of Norway and Faroe Island, but the rest of the regions will only witness the partial solar eclipse. The whole eclipse is going to last about 4 hours...

Although Scotland is the best place to watch it from here in UK, Southampton will get to see its share of eclipse quite well (unless it is cloudy). I am planning to watch it from here in Southampton where it will start from 8:23AM to 10:39AM GMT with the maximum eclipse estimated at 9:29AM...

Here's to the amazing day of celestial carnival :)
