The annular eclipse of the Sun, which will occur on the next Thursday, June 10, can be observed in Yakutia and Chukotka. This was announced by Roskosmos with reference to the data of the Moscow Planetarium, specifying that the maximum phase will be observed at 13:40 Moscow time.
As it diminishes, the solar eclipse will begin in North America and end in the Far East. “On the territory of Russia, partial phases of the eclipse will be visible – from 0.01 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur to 0.91 in the city of Pevek in Chukotka,” the corporation's website says.
In Moscow, the cosmic phenomenon can be seen only by partial phases of the eclipse. The maximum can be observed at 14:26, when the Moon closes the Sun by 16 percent.
In addition to Russians, residents of Canadian Ontario and Greenland will be able to observe the annular solar eclipse. In addition, a fully annular phase will be visible at the North Pole.
As noted, annular solar eclipses have not been noticed on the territory of Russia for more than 50 years.
