Shortly before noon, a two-hour long-lasting scam began, which, unlike many others, can be observed during the day. The eclipse of the Sun is visible as a wall on our earth.
This year, we have not been able to cover the Msc from our point of view from the point of view of the sun, but this event is quite unique in it. The eclipse occurs around noon, which means that it is still visible in the built-up areas, because it moves high above the horizon. According to astronomers, such a high solar eclipse will be visible again in 2179.
This decay returned to the Czech Republic after six years. The previous eclipse visible from us was on February 20, 2015, and he only took a year to do so. The eclipse of the Sun may appear precious to the moment, not to look at it globally, from the point of view of the whole globe.
In the world, various types of solar eclipses can be seen several times a year, with the exception of full solar eclipses. Specialist astronomer Miloslav Druckmller acquires his collections from around the world with darkness.

Let’s go back to that current. The decay began in the Czech Republic after 11:35 Central European Summer Time (SEL), when the silhouette of Msce in the new phase began to bite into a sunny disk from the upper right edge. According to astronomer Petr Horlek, most of the sunshine covered the northwest, but according to the entrance, the eclipse started later and was smaller.
An observer in the Czech Republic standing at the 50th degree north and 15th degree entrance lengths saw the Msc imaginably driven 16.8% deep into the Sun’s disk. Less than 10% of the Sun’s surface alone disappeared, say Martin Gembec from the Astro.cz server.
Just for comparison, six years ago, Msc darkly covered 75 percent of the sun’s disk.
For example, at the entrance to Slovakia, the decay was visible and after 12:08 SEL and covered reached only nine percent. The maximum decay occurred above the range between 12:30 and 12:55 depending on the position of the observer, generally reported as 12:39. Around noon it was more than 60 degrees above the horizon, the decay then ended before 14:00.
If you want to watch a full solar eclipse this year, you would have to go to Antarctica in December. As mentioned, for a year you will be able to enjoy this ghost again and this time in t intensity. On June 25, 2022, Msc will cover more than 40 percent of the Sun.
Petr Horlek adds that over the next nine years he will be able to observe six eclipses in the Czech Republic. Next to it, in 2022, it will be 2025, 2026, 2027, 2029 and 2030.
The nearest full eclipse of the Sun observable with us will take place on June 7, 2135, when it should be visible if there is good weather, e.g. in st nad Labem, Liberec, Hradec Krlov, Olomouc or in Ostrava. The next full solar eclipse observable in Europe will occur on August 12, 2026 and will be observable in Spain or in the westernmost areas of Iceland.
Those who did not want to observe the eclipse could choose the offers of a number of Czech stars and astronomical associations, which prepared a fashionable observation of this decay. When watching the car, you had to pay attention to safety and protect your eyes.
The eclipse is observable with protective aids, such as glass made of glass goggles, the so-called Mylar fleece or at least through a compact disc. When looking into the Sun, through the telescope not equipped with a filter, the threat was visually impaired.
It is said, for example, that first Galileo had vision problems due to the observation of the Sun, Pavel Suchan from the Astronomical State of the Academy of R. R.
