Eclipse visible in Helsinki – January 4, 2011 — Partial Solar Eclipse

The animation shows what the eclipse approximately looks like in Helsinki

During this partial solar eclipse, the Moon covers only parts of the Sun, as seen from Helsinki. As the central part of the Moon's shadow (umbra) misses the Earth during a partial solar eclipse, there are no other locations on Earth where the Sun appears completely covered during this event.

The Moon covers a large portion of the Sun, so this is still a spectacular sight.
