UPDATE: There are two places where you’ll be able to observe the eclipse safely. Astrolapalma will hold a free event at Llano de las Brujas from 10:30-1:30 pm, and Astrotour will hold an event costing 2€ per person at the ecological banana plantation EcoFinca Platanologico from 11 am – 1 pm.
Do NOT look directly at the sun. You might go blind.
On November 3rd 2013 there will be a hybrid solar eclipse. “Hybrid” means that in some places it will be a total eclipse and in other it will be an annual eclipse – that is, the moon will be directly in front of the sun, but it will be slightly farther away than usual, so that it appears slightly smaller than usual – too small to cover the sun completely. In any case, from the Canary Islands the moon will cover just 40% of the sun. From here, the maximum eclipse will be at 12:15 pm. From the UK and Germany, the moon will be next to the sun in the sky, but not cover it. From mainland Spain, the eclipse will cover 10-20% of the sun, reaching its maximum at about 12:30 pm.
The next solar eclipse will be an annual eclipse in Antarctica on 29th April, 2014. I don’t think I’ll be going all the way to Antarctica myself.
