Partial Solar Eclips

The first partial solar eclipse 2011 is scheduled for January 4th, 2011, and will be seen in Europe, Africa and Central Asia. This eclipse will begin at 06:40:11 UT (Universal Time)) and culminates at 11:00:54 UT. The greatest eclipse – the point of time when the distance between the Moon’s shadow axis and Earth’s center is the minimum – will happen at 08:50:35 UT over northern Sweden. If you live in northern Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, you will be able to witness this eclipse. [More at Universe Today]

I was surprised when I came back from holidays to see that the solar flux is above 90. Hopefully this year the solar flux will go to higher levels.

eQSL I received from Manuel. We made a JT65A QSO last year.
