Sci/Tech

A total solar eclipse will begin in northern Canada early Friday morning, and sweep through Greenland, the Arctic, Russia, Mongolia, and China. A partial solar eclipse will be seen in the northeastern parts of North America, and much of Europe and Asia.

The beginning of the general eclipse (when the Moon partially hides the Sun from the Earth) will occur in far-northern Canada early in the morning at about 8:04 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), or 4:04 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

The total solar eclipse will begin at about 9:21 a.m. GMT, or 5:21 a.m. EDT.

The central eclipse will begin at 9:24 a.m. GMT, and the greatest part of the eclipse will begin at 10:21 a.m. GMT.

The Sun will be completely hidden by the Moon for 2 minutes, 27 seconds (the maximum duration at the greatest eclipse point) beginning at 10:21:08 GMT, in northern Russia.
