Partial solar eclipse: March 19th 2007

If you live in eastern Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea (North and South) and parts of Japan and Alaska, you should be able to see a partial eclipse of the Sun during 19th March. I make the start of the eclipse in about nine and a half hours from the time of this post i.e. the middle of the night for those of us in the UK!

NASA's eclipse website has a map showing the areas that can see it (I'm bound to have missed some countries from my list) and the amount of the Sun's disc which will be covered from each location. If you live in any of those countries, I hope you have good weather. As always, don't look directly at the Sun without proper eclipse glasses or, if you don't have those, use a projection technique instead.
