This solar eclipse is supposed to be the greatest one in 60 years. The moon is set to cover about 99% of the sun you would normally see. In Reykjavik it’s estimated that this number is 97% but in the east of the country it will be 99%.
The eclipse will climax about 20 minutes before 10 in the morning. To increase the spectacle, Venus should be visible looking east on the left side of the sun when the eclipse reaches it’s climax.
This is only the 4th such eclipse in Iceland since the milennium.
