Total Solar Eclipse: August 1, 2008

Geographic Region: northeastern N. America, Europe, Asia
[Total: northern Canada, Greenland, Siberia, Mongolia, China]

On Friday, 2008 August 01, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses half the Earth. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in Canada and extends across northern Greenland, the Arctic, central Russia, Mongolia, and China where it will end at sunset. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes northeastern North America, most of Europe and Asia.
