Solar eclipse visible in Tenerife tomorrow

eclipse jan 2011b

The first solar eclipse of 2011 will be visible from the Canaries from 7.50 am tomorrow morning. The local press is saying it is an anular eclipse, but NASA says it is partial: it should still provide a real spectacle for anyone with a clear line of sight to the sun. The eclipse will also be visible in the rest of Europe and eastern India. The above animation and following diagram come from NASA, and show the global map where the eclipse will be visible.

Warning: Do not try to see this without something such as smoked glass to look through. And on no account with binoculars or a telescope, unless specially adapted.
