Total Solar Eclipse Tuesday | Weather
Starting at 23:30 UT Tuesday, a total solar eclipse will be visible for four minutes and two seconds, over a 99 mile wide path. However, the only city that will be able to view the total eclipse will be Cairns, Australia. The eclipse will also pass over part of the Garig Ganak Barlu National Park in Australia’s Northern Territory, but sky-watchers will only be able to enjoy two minutes of the total eclipse there. Places like New Zealand, Fiji, Papau New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and much of Indonesia will only be able to see a partial solar eclipse.
Don’t live in Cairns, Australia? Don’t worry! Thanks to the internet you can watch the whole thing live at websites such as this one, or this one. The eclipse will actually occur at sunrise on Wednesday, Nov. 14 for Australians watching it live, but it will still be Tuesday afternoon for people watching online in America.
Also, on August 21, 2017, we will have a chance to view a total solar eclipse here in the U.S. Cities such as Lexington, SC (13 miles west of Columbia), Dillard, GA (110 miles northeast of Atlanta), Athens, TN (60 miles northeast of Knoxville), Hopkinsville, KY (70 miles north of Nashville), St. Joseph, MO (50 miles north of Kansas City), Casper, WY (210 miles north of Denver), Salem, OR (45 miles south of Portland). This total solar eclipse will be visible for two minutes and 40 seconds. Here in Atlanta and surrounding suburbs, however, we will only be able to see a partial solar eclipse.
