One of the astronomical events of the 2015 will take place today Friday, March 20 that will be expected solar eclipse, that this time will be total. However, only in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard can contemplate this spectacle in all its glory.
In Spain and most of Europe and Asia will not be more than partial, in the U.S. and Latin America it will not be possible to see it. Do you want to know When is the best time to see it, from where, and precautions to take? As we are going with this.
When the total solar eclipse will be and where to see it
The solar eclipse, although it will be total, not can see the same way everywhere. As we have indicated, it will be in the Arctic archipelagos Faroe and Svalbard where you can better appreciate the eclipse. In those two places is where the eclipse will touch land. In general, When further to the North, fuller will be seen.
In Europe and Asia much, they appreciate how partial eclipse (the moon will cover 72% of Sun, and media, in Spain in Madrid that size will be between 60 and 80%), which will mean that there will be an apocalyptic darkening during the day. In the autonomous community of Galicia will be where, in theory, better you will see the eclipse if weather conditions are not against.
The eclipse will start just the 9.09 a.m. (Pacific time) and will be by finishing the 10,21. The moment in which the eclipse will be maximum will be the 9.46, with a duration of 2 minutes and 47 seconds.
This solar eclipse visible is the first that occurs from 2013, although on that occasion he had a very low magnitude. The following can be seen in Spain will be August 21, 2017, but will coincide with the sunset. The next that will have similar conditions on March 20 will not happen now until August 12, 2026.
How to view the eclipse. Precautions and advice
The best way to watch the eclipse safely is approaching an observation or Planetarium Center. In Spain it will be several centers that will offer this possibility. An example is the Planetarium of Madrid, where on March 20 will open to the public to keep track of the eclipse. The event will take place from 9: 00 until 1115 of the morning.
For viewing secure Eclipse the Astronomical Association of Madrid (AAM) appear several telescopes provided with the appropriate filters, there will also be eclipse glasses for all attendees. In addition, an expert will go live commenting different phases that passes the eclipse, information the same as well as curiosities.
The security when contemplating the eclipse should be maximum. The sun never should be observed with the naked eye, or so if you want when there are eclipse and if we think that the eye damage is lower. Not worth the sunglasses, keep that in mind.
To watch the eclipse safely the use of special filters is required. This condition is also required when using binoculars or telescopes, which must bear the corresponding filters. Failure to do so with these precautions may cause serious and irreversible damage in the view.
Homemade ‘tricks’ based in smoked glasses, CDs or photo negatives are useless. Observation must only be carried out with specific filters for telescopes and with eclipse glasses, which have this approved by the European Community for solar observation (opacity index 5 or greater)
A perfectly valid option for observe the eclipse at home is watching his image projected on some sort of display screen located in the shade, which can be achieved with a simple paper which has been trimmed a hole one centimeter in diameter, or with the use of a mirror (but not directly on the mirror but the projection on a wall or cardboard)
See the total eclipse Internet
A great way to be able to contemplate the live eclipse safely is to do online. Slooh site going to broadcast live, so if you caught in the library studying, at home or at work, a good idea to open your browser and go comfortably to this phenomenon:
Another option to watch the eclipse live and online is to follow him via sky-live.tv, where will be commented by different astronomers of the European glory project, led by the astronomer of the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics (IAC), Miquel Serra-Ricart, who also will take advantage of this event to collect environmental data (temperature, pressure, light intensity and humidity) related to the eclipse.
A test for renewable energy
This total solar eclipse is important beyond the purely astronomical aspect for energy reasons. When it was the last eclipse of this type in Europe, the percentage of solar energy within the general computation on the old continent was almost anecdotal. Today such participation is greater, so This phenomenon will be used to test systems that regulate the distribution of renewable energy produced in Europe and that by 2020 must be 20% of the total.
The purpose of the test to be carried out is know how is the impact of such events on the stability of the European electrical network increasingly more dependent on renewable energy sources and how to manage the fluctuations that may occur with this type of natural phenomena.
