There was a total solar eclipse in the United States on Monday. At 10 a.m. (7 p.m. Dutch time), the moon will have already moved 75 percent in front of the sun in Oregon, in the northwestern United States.
At 10:16 a.m. (7:16 p.m. Dutch time), the total solar eclipse officially begins there.
Full area clips can be admired in twelve states. The moon’s shadow moved southeast from Oregon, and eventually moved out into the ocean through South Carolina. The solar eclipse over North America ended around 11:50 AM (8:50 PM NST).
The solar eclipse was not visible in the Netherlands. Ireland, southwest England, Brittany, Portugal and far western Spain have caught a glimpse of the moon slightly blocking the sun.
The eclipse can be followed live via the Weerplaza as well CNN It turned out great. According to NASA, a total solar eclipse can be seen once every 375 years where you live.
The last time anyone in the United States saw a solar eclipse was 40 years ago. A total solar eclipse passing over the United States was last seen in 1918, when the solar eclipse moved from Washington state to Florida.
The next total solar eclipse will be in Europe in 2026. The eclipse will then orbit from Iceland to northern Spain. There won’t be a total solar eclipse until 2100 in the Netherlands. The last total eclipse in the Netherlands was on May 3, 1715. The next eclipse is scheduled for October 7, 2135.
