Did you know?

A solar eclipse always occurs about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. Usually, there are two eclipses in a row, but other times, there are three during the same eclipse season.

On December 4 there will be a Total Solar Eclipse, but you will have to travel a long way to Antarctica to see the total phase of this total solar eclipse.

Parts of southern Africa, including locations in South Africa and Namibia, will see a partial solar eclipse, if the weather permits. Unfortunately it won't be visible in Europe.
