Partial Solar Eclipse Occurs on November 25, 2011

The last partial solar eclipse of 2011 will occur on November 25, 2011. This eclipse will be the last of the four partial solar eclipses in 2011 that occur throughout the year.

Where is the Eclipse Visible?
The November 25 partial solar eclipse will only be visible from a limited area in the southern hemisphere. The lunar penumbra will be centered near Antarctica, while its outermost edge will pass over portions of New Zealand’s South Island, Tasmania, and the southernmost part of South Africa. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s shadow misses the earth but passes very close to it.
