Weather Prospects for the Eclipse
The lunar shadow begins its three hour trek off the coast of Nova Scotia in
the cloudy skies of the North Atlantic, just beyond Canada's Sable Island.
A third of the globe later it reaches land in southwest England. While this
is the best location in Great Britain, better weather can be found farther
along the track where the frequency of sunny weather improves steadily into
the Middle East. Beyond Iran, the Indian monsoon rapidly diminishes the
chances of a view of this spectacle and sunset finds the shadow over the very
cloudy skies of the Bay of Bengal.
