Partial Eclipse of the Sun


Saturday, January 5, 2019: Partial Eclipse of the Sun

This eclipse is visible from North America only in westernmost Alaska. (It is also visible from northeastern China, Mongolia, Japan, eastern Russia, and northern Micronesia.) In Bethel, Alaska, for example, the eclipse will begin at 3:25 P.M. AKST, reach a maximum (obscuring about 60% of the Sun) at 4:51 P.M. AKST, and end at 6:16 P.M. AKST, with the Sun being very low on the horizon for the entire duration of the partial eclipse.
