Total Solar Eclipse of 2027 August 2 in Luxor, Egypt - Xavier Jubier


 Total Solar Eclipse of 2027 August 2 in Egypt

The point of greatest eclipse (totality phase during 6 min 23 sec) lies in Egypt 
close to Luxor. I will very likely travel to Egypt where the duration is the 
longest and the weather prospects the best. This eclipse in Egypt will be 
historic, moreover its path goes over Mecca which may mean a big crowd.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances 
of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the 
various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose 
your camera settings.
