The Eclipse at Aberystwyth

In the diagram to the left the dark blue lines denote the path of the total eclipse, with the area with the greatest eclipse to the south east of Iceland in the Norwegian Sea. From Aberystwyth only a partial eclipse will be visible. However even at Aberystwyth up to around 90% of the Sun's surface will be covered at maximum eclipse occuring at 09:29 local time. The eclipse will commence with first contact with the moon at 08:34 and last contact will be later at 10:38 local time. Below an animation shows regions where the eclipse can be seen.
