I’ve seen the moon before, but never like this. The sky is clear and I can see it’s full shape when it rises in the east. It’s beautiful, but not as much as what happens next. As the sun sets and night falls, a sliver of light appears on one side of its face – a partial eclipse! I’m standing where you can only see that with your own eyes from Earth: at the place where you see a partial moon. Gazing up at an astronomical event for which humans have been hunting since ancient times has me feeling so small, yet so connected to people around us all over our planet who are also watching this show unfold tonight.” – Chris Gunnarson “The Place Where You See a Partial Moon.” – Chris Gunnarson In early September, North America will see the first total eclipse in 38 years. For those of us who are not fortunate enough to live close to the path of totality – or if you do but have been living under an air conditioner for too long and can’t bear to take your eyes off it for even one second – there is hope! On November 14th, 2017 at 11:03 p.m. Eastern Time (04:03 UT on Nov 15), we’ll get another chance with our next big partial solar eclipse across most of Europe and Scandinavia, then north Africa before finishing its journey into southern Asia
