Partial Solar Eclipse Coming Thursday as Moon Blocks Sun

By    |   Wednesday, 22 Oct 2014 06:31 PM

A partial solar eclipse is expected to be widely visible from Canada to the United States on Thursday, according to NASA.

The partial eclipse is expected to last for more than two hours, with the best view being in the Central Time Zone, while it won’t be visible from New England and Hawaii. It is expected to begin at 1:52 p.m. in San Francisco and 5:49 p.m. in New York, according to Space.com, which includes charts of the best viewing times throughout North America.

The next solar eclipse will be a total eclipse in 2017.

Those interesting in viewing the partial eclipse should remember not to look directly at the sun, which can harm the eyes.

The simplest way to safely view the eclipse is to create a pinhole projector using two pieces of paper or to look for the image of the eclipse in the shadow cast by foliage, The Los Angeles Times reported.



Twitter users commented about the eclipse.
