The partial solar eclipse on July 1, 2011, is only visible if you are on the coast of Antarctica, where the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. This eclipse occurs only one month after the June 1 partial solar eclipse. The lunar penumbra briefly touches the globe off Lutzow-Holm bay, which is on the coast of Antarctica. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s shadow misses the Earth but passes very close to it.
