Partial Solar Eclipse Seen From Bermuda

August 21, 2017

This afternoon [Aug 21], Bermuda saw a partial view of the solar eclipse, affording the island a glimpse of what it looks like when the moon slides between the sun and the earth, casting a shadow below.

While the total phase of this solar eclipse was not visible in Bermuda, it was observed as a partial solar eclipse. Although total solar eclipses are visible somewhere on Earth about every 18 months, it is rare for the path of totality to cross exclusively through the continental United States.

According to NASA: “The next time will be January 2316. Another solar eclipse will be visible in the continental United States in April 2024, but it will not pass over as many places in the United States as the 2017 event.”
