“A total solar Eclipse will occur on 9 March”

March 9, at 3 o’clock 16 minutes Moscow time will begin on a total solar Eclipse. Initially, it can be observed in the North-Eastern Indian ocean, near Sumatra island, and then in several cities in Indonesia, as well as on some Islands of Oceania. Partial solar Eclipse will be observed, including, on certain regions of Russia.

Total Eclipse of the Sun can be seen on the Islands of Sipora and Pagai-Utara, Sumatra, Bank, Belitung Sulawesi, Ternate, Tidore, Mare and others, and in the cities of Palembang, Palu and Alankara. Its duration in different regions will be from a half to four minutes, according to the Moscow planetarium.

In Southeast Asia, most of Australia and Oceania, you can observe the partial phase of the Eclipse. They can also be observed in the Russian far East, however in these areas the solar disk is only slightly (on average by about a tenth) obscured by the moon. The greatest phase will occur in the southern Kuril Islands, where it will amount to 0.16. This means that the moon will cover about 16 percent of the apparent diameter of the solar disk.

A year on Earth may occur from two to five solar eclipses, of which complete can be no more than two. As shown by observations of scientists for a century on our planet, on average, there are 63 full and 14 annular solar eclipses (the Moon is too far from the Earth, and visually it looks as though it could not obscure the entire disc of the sun).

The astronomer claim that the near total solar Eclipse in Moscow will be observed on October 16, 2126 year, and the previous was held on 19 August 1887

After 600 million years, tidal acceleration would keep the moon from the Earth so that a total solar Eclipse will be impossible
