Partial Solar Eclipse Best Seen From Alaska

from United Press International

Residents of Oregon and Alaska could have the best views of a partial solar eclipse that will occur Tuesday morning.

At the height of the eclipse, perhaps 80% of the sun’s light will be blocked as the moon’s shadow falls on Alaska, astronomers said. They said the best vantage points in the lower 48 states should be around Seattle and Eugene, Ore., where about half the sun will be hidden from view shortly after 10 a.m.
