Eclipse visible in Fairbanks – Mar 18, 2007 Partial Solar Eclipse

The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like in Fairbanks (weather permitting).

During this partial solar eclipse, the Moon covers only parts of the Sun, as seen from Fairbanks. 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 only a small portion of the Sun.
