Eclipse Calculator – Eclipses in Oakland, California, U.S.A.
The animation shows approximately what the eclipse looks like in Oakland (weather permitting).
During this partial solar eclipse, the Moon covers only parts of the Sun, as seen from Oakland. 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.

Sun close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to West-southwest.
|Maximum Eclipse||Nov 21 at 4:53 PM||245°||0.2° below||Moon is closest to the center of the Sun.|
Since the Sun is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to West-southwest for the best view of the eclipse.

|Partial Eclipse ends||Nov 21 at 5:54 PM||245°||0.2° below||Not directly visible||Below horizon|
This eclipse is in progress during sunrise or sunset, so the Sun is displayed only partly in some phases, according to its altitude below the horizon. The animation's bottom edge represents an ideal, flat horizon, which is at the same altitude as the observer.
