Partial eclipse, where to see?
The sun has a rendezvous with the moon this Tuesday, July 16. In Paris, the eclipse will be visible from 21h43 and ends at 2: 17, the next day. The Moon being quite low on the horizon, it would be better to put in height and look in the opposite direction at sunset. The AFA (the French Association of Astronomy) invites the Parisians for an evening under the stars in the park of Belleville. The Moon, the Sun and the Earth are almost aligned on the same axis and the weather promises to be clear. In part, the show should be nice, letting you see a moon dressed in red. The phenomenon will be observable to the naked eye and does not require any protection.
Eclipse of the Moon. Belvedere in the Park of Belleville. 47, rue des Couronnes (Xx). On July 16, 2019, from 21h. Free. 13 nights in 13 places organized by the AFA. Note: twelve other evenings stellate in place in paris to discover on the site.
