On June 10 there will be an annular solar eclipse

The ring of fire will only be visible in some areas in the far north of the planet, while the partial solar eclipse will be visible in most of Europe and, marginally, in Northern Italy

But the ring of fire will only be visible in a few and sparsely populated areas in the North of the Earth: the North Pole, Greenland, Canada and northern Russia. The partial solar eclipse, on the other hand, can also be appreciated in much of Europe. Italy will be involved only marginally, with the Sun being minimally covered in the Northern regions.

Annular Eclipse of the Sun

Compared to a total solar eclipse, the eclipse annulare is so called because the disk of the Moon enters that of the Sun, but, since our satellite is not at the right distance from the Earth, it cannot cover it all and leaves its edges uncovered. The effect - truly fascinating - is that of a ring of fire in the sky.

The annular eclipse of the Sun on June 10, however, will be a fairly elitist event: the ring of fire will only be visible from a few areas of the planet, remote and not very inhabited. To be able to observe the phenomenon directly (always with the necessary precautions) we should in fact be at the North Pole, in Canada or in northern Russia, in Greenland.

As always, however, there are streaming, such as that of Timeanddate.

Partial solar eclipse

The partial solar eclipse, on the other hand, can also be observed in a large part of Europe.

However, Italy will be very far on the margins: the solar disk will be obscured by that of the Moon only in low percentages in the Northern regions. For example, according to the website Timeanddate in Milan, the eclipse will begin at 11:35 on 10 June, will reach its maximum at 12.18 with the darkening of 3.5% of the solar disk, and will end at 13:03. Under Florence, however, nothing will be seen.
