The fourth solar eclipse of this century is to be seen across four continents from South America to Central Asia on Wednesday and will be partially visible in Romania at 12:44, for approximately two hours and 25 minutes when the Moon will cover the Sun.

The route of the apparent night will spread across 14,500 km, passing by Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Niger, Libya, Turkey, Georgia, South Russia and Kazakhstan.

In Europe, the eclipse will be visible for a short period, as the higher the altitude of the regions crossed, the faster the speed of the phenomenon: 3,380 km/h near the Poles and 1,700 km/h close to the Equator.

For safety reasons, as an eclipse is quite dangerous for bare eyes, and for those that cannot watch it, NASA will for the fist time broadcast such an event on the internet.
