Eclipses in 2004
(Only eclipses visible in Algeria, and thus in Northern Africa and Southern Europe

Some Quick Resources

 The Two Things to Watch For

  • The various hues and colors appearing on the Moon's face and especially at the edge during the various phases of the eclipse.
  • The darkness degree at the middle stage of the totality. This is estimated using the Danjon scale of Eclipse darkness.
