Total Solar Eclipse March 20, 2015: Visible in Faroe Islands and Partial In Europe

Brace yourself as Total Solar Eclipse on March 20, 2015 unfolds which will be visible in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard in Norway while a Partial Solar Eclipse will occur in Europe including northern and eastern Asia and northern and western Africa as the eclipse will start at 07:41 UTC and ends at 11:50 UTC with a magnitude of 1.045 and the longest duration of totality will be at 2 minutes 47 seconds off the coast of the Faroe Islands. It will be the last total solar eclipse visible in Europe before another one happens on August 12, 2026 were man might have landed already on Mars during that time. What I'm trying to say is that it would be to long before another eclipse will happen so people in Scotland and parts of Europe must not miss this rare astronomical event. In case you don't know yet, a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. It happens, I mean the total solar eclipse, when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's thereby blocking all direct sunlight in which turning daytime into darkness while roosters feels uneasy because all of a sudden it will become dark, just like what happened in the movie Apocalypto, when Almost was about to be beheaded, He was saved by the Total Eclipse of the sun because people during that time worship the Sun and for an eclipse to happen means something a lot for them. By the way you should see the diamond ring effect during solar eclipse and Solar eclipse was Einstein's best friend so find out why:-)


Considered to be the first and only total solar eclipse of 2015, it crosses the far-northern reaches of the north Atlantic Ocean on the morning of March 20, 2015 and lucky observers on the Faroe Islands and few northern island outposts will be treated with the total eclipse while most of Europe can see at least a partial solar eclipse, but that's not bad at all. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide and at the end of its path, the shadow of the Moon rises from Earth's surface to space at the north pole so March 20th is the Northward equinox, the eclipse occurs as the Sun rises at the North Pole after six months. And one last thing, as a precaution, please DO NOT look the sun directly with your naked eye, instead use a filter or safety glasses to block out the intense radiation from the sun because if not you will know what happen then and your guess is good as mine:-)
