Height of the partial phase of the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 over North America just north of the path of totality. Due to the comparatively small Moon that has to cover the disc of the Sun for a solar eclipse to occur, solar eclipses cannot be observed from everywhere on the day side of Earth but only from somewhere on or near the rather narrow path the Moon’s shadow takes from west to east on the surface of Earth.
Total eclipses can be observed from anywhere on this so-called path of totality, clear skies permitting. Close to the path of totality, observers can still enjoy a partial solar eclipse. I shot this picture from a viewpoint where the Moon covered up to 93% of the disc of the Sun, also called a magnitude of 0.93.
