Eclipse visible in Anchorage – Oct 13, 2004 Partial Solar Eclipse
The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like in Anchorage (weather permitting).
During this partial solar eclipse, the Moon covers only parts of the Sun, as seen from Anchorage. 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.
