SINT MAARTEN - Never experienced a solar eclipse? Then it's your chance. On Monday, August 21, between two and six o'clock in the afternoon the sun will disappear for a large part behind the moon.
The partial solar eclipse is greatest at ten to four. At that time, 63% of the sun will be covered. If you want to see a total solar eclipse, you will need to find a spot between Oregon and South Carolina in the United States.
Meteorological Departments have warned not to look at the partial eclipse without special glasses.
