Friday Morning Solar Eclipse

A Partial Solar Eclipse will be visible from Ibiza Friday 20th March.

Only areas as far North as the Faroe Islands will be able to see the full solar eclipse, however we will see approximately 60% of the Sun covered when the Moon crosses our line of sight to the Sun.

Ibiza timings

thumb

It is very important not to look directly at the Sun during the eclipse, and sunglasses are not adequate protection from the very damaging affects of the Sun to eyes. It is only possible to look at the event directly with special glasses made for the purpose, or using welding goggles. For the same reason it is also very dangerous to attempt photography of the event using a viewfinder and selfie attempts can ruin your phone and still damage your eyes
