May 31 12:00-14:00
Webcasting the annular solar eclipse of the midnight sun
From Akureyri in Iceland and Helsinki in Finland

Different from a total solar eclipse, which the moon hides the sun completely, an annular solar eclipse is a phenomenon that the moon does not hide the sun completely and the sun looks like a ring. This time, the annular solar eclipse occurs in the midnight sun season.
We will broadcast from Akureyri in Iceland and Helsinki in Finland. The annular solar eclipse will be observed in Akureyri and a partial solar eclipse (85.8% eclipse) will be observed in Helsinki.

Live images

This webcast will be carried out based on the live video images and the animation of time-lapse photographs. We will broadcast the live video and time-lapse photographs from Akureyri and the time-lapse photographs from Helsinki. The animation of time-lapse photographs is made of still images taken at regular time intervals. As the passage of time is compressed, you can see in a short amount of time that the surface of the earth darkens by the eclipse.
