On Thursday, around noon, there will be a solar eclipse, which will be partially visible in Poland. Demonstrations of this phenomenon will be carried out in various places with the help of appropriately equipped telescopes. For safety reasons, the sun can only be seen through devices with appropriate filters.
- On Thursday, June 10, it will be possible to observe the annular eclipse
- The strip in which they can be seen will pass through Canada, Greenland, the Arctic and the eastern tip of Asia
- The maximum duration of the annular eclipse phase is 3 minutes 51 seconds
- The last total eclipse visible in our country was in 1954, and the next one will be in 2075.

In Warsaw it will start at 11:55, the maximum stage will reach around 0.20 at 12:54 and finish at 13:54. In other places, individual moments may vary by several minutes or several minutes. The largest stage will be visible in northern Poland, for example in Gdask or Szczecin, and will reach about 0.26. On the other hand, in the south of the country, the part of the sun covered by the moon will be the smallest, for example in Krakow, its maximum will reach about 0.14.
How to observe a solar eclipse
To see a partial eclipse, we need a way to weaken the sunlight, because while the moon blocks part of the sun’s disk, the glare of our star “blinds”.
Under no circumstances should you look at the sun with binoculars or telescopesIf they are not equipped with suitable filters – this may cause damage or blindness.
The safest way to observe is to display an image of the Sun from a telescope on a screen (for example, a white paper). However, the eclipse can also be viewed without a telescope, for example thanks to special glasses for observing this type of phenomenon. When it comes to home methods, you can search through a smoked glass or a CD, But it must be handled with caution (Do not exaggerate with the length of time such devices stare at the sun), because even Not completely safe for sight.
In various places in Poland, some astronomical institutions and organizations will organize eclipse shows with the appropriate equipment. In Warsaw, for example, the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Warsaw invites you to observe it In front of its headquarters in Aleje Ujazdowskie 4 at 12:00 (please inform us in advance).
For those who will not have the appropriate equipment or the opportunity to look at the target, the ZEISS telescope dispatch, for example, is organized by the AMU Astronomical Observatory together with the AMU film studio. Submission can be continued on the AMU profile on Facebook.
solar eclipse. From Poland, partial eclipses can often be observed
Solar eclipses happen relatively often – Two to five times a year, and they are only visible in certain areas of the EarthSo they are much rarer in a particular place. Total eclipses are really rare from a single area perspective, and statistically they occur in one area every 370 years.
In Poland, the last visible total eclipse was in 1954 (Suwałki, Sejny), and the next one will be in 2075. For the annular eclipse visible from our country, we will have to wait until the year 2135. Partial eclipses can often be seen from Poland. The previous event was on June 21, 2020, but only part of the solar disk (less than 1 percent), visible from the Bieszczady Mountains, was covered. The partial eclipse was already visible from across Poland on March 20, 2015. The next day after this year will be October 25, 2022.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves around the earth in the line of sight between the sun and the earth. Then it is on a new moon, but since its orbit is not perfectly circular and has a certain inclination relative to the plane of the Earth’s orbit around the sun, the eclipse does not occur on every new moon.
The most exciting is the total eclipse, when the entire solar disk is covered and then we see the solar corona everywhere. If this part of the disk remains visible, it is called a partial eclipse. There is also a so-called annular eclipse, and in this category the eclipse will fall on Thursday, June 10. In an annular eclipse, the entire Moon blocks the Sun, but the Moon is very far from our planet and the angular size of the disk visible in the sky is smaller than that of the Sun. In this case, a bright ring can be seen around the dark disk of the moon.
It was known in ancient times that moments of solar eclipses were predictable. Currently, the total eclipse is also a great tourist attraction, it is able to encourage many people to go to the country through which the belt of the total eclipse passes.
