The solar eclipse on 20th March 2015 will be visible as a partial eclipse
in Lapland. If the weather allows and it's not too cloudy, SGO will offer the
chance to follow the eclipse on our web pages between 11:00h and 13:00h.
Additional information on how to watch the eclipse safely is available, e.g.,
from the Royal Astronomical Society.
The eclipse begins at Sodankylä at 11:08h and ends at 13:18h. The maximum is at 12:13h when the Moon covers just over 90% of the Sun. The exact times change with location. All times given at East European Time.
Important: Never watch, film or photograph the Sun without proper protection and filters!
