Bright red crescent: Russians will see a solar eclipse


A partial solar eclipse will occur on October 25th. The closing of the Sun by the Moon will be clearly visible from the regions of Siberia, the Urals and the European part of Russia, Oleg Kashin, an employee of the Big Novosibirsk Planetarium, told RG.

According to him, in the Novosibirsk region, the eclipse will begin at 17.10 local time and last an hour almost until sunset. The inhabitants of Siberia will see the celestial phenomenon from an unusual angle.

“Near the horizon, almost 70 percent of the solar disk will be covered by the Moon. We will see a bright red crescent. You can look at it without protecting your eyes with filters,” Kashin said.

The regions of the Urals and the western part of Russia will watch the eclipse to the end, since the Sun at this moment will be located higher than in Siberia. The weather must be clear to see the eclipse.

The next eclipse will be lunar, and it will occur on the night of November 8th. The phenomenon will be clearly visible beyond the Urals.
