Happy First Day of Spring! This year’s first day of spring is especially important. Some are even calling it “Freaky Friday”! The reason being that the first aurora borealis of the year and now a solar eclipse are happening today! These solar eclipses are meant to officially “announce” the start of the spring season and are known as a sort of “supermoon”. One unfortunate fact is that the total solar eclipse will not be visible anywhere in the United States. The people actually able to see this natural beauty is the people located in some rather remote islands in far Northern Europe this morning, and the people able to witness the entire thing will be those in the Danish-owed Faroe islands and just a few folks in the Norwegian area. Although, a partial view will be enjoyed by all of Europe, much of Northern Africa and most of Northern Asia. A partial eclipse is when the moon blocks only part of the Sun from the Earth’s view. This is the Earth’s first and only total solar eclipse of the year and the first one since November 2013. The next total solar eclipse that can be seen fully by the United States will be held in August of 2017. However, the spring equinox, when the sun shines directly on the equator, occurs at 6:45 p.m. Contact us today for any questions! 858-459-5478.
