    March 8, 2016 – March 9, 2016 — Total Solar Eclipse

    The total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean.

    Observers in northern and eastern Australia, in South Asia, and in East Asia will be able to see a partial eclipse.

    The eclipse will begin at 23:19 UTC on March 8, 2016, and its maximum point will take place at 01:59 UTC on March 9, 2016. Totality will last for 4 minutes and 9 seconds.

    A few examples of what the eclipse will look like:

    For the Total Eclipse

    For a Partial Eclipse which most of us will be seeing

    The sky was overcast and pouring all day over here. Bummer :< But I know some guys at the local observatory who went out to Malaysia to see the full eclipse. If possible, I will try to share some of their photos. Also, the next Solar eclipse is scheduled to occur on September 1, 2016 according to NASA.
