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.
