 Partial Solar Eclipse of 2011 January 4
 in Europe

The first solar eclipse of 2011 is partial and will be visible from much of Europe, North Africa, Middle East and central Asia. The next one of this general type visible in France will be on 2022 October 25, but will have a lower magnitude. The total solar eclipses of 2015 March 20 and 2017 August 21 and the annular of 2021 June 10 will be seen as partial in France. The next partial I will try to observe is on 2011 November 25 in Antarctica.
Greatest eclipse is located in northern Sweden where the eclipse on the horizon will have a magnitude of 0.86. Weather permitting I should be able to see it from home at sunrise.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.

From Paris if the weather is nice enough, the first solar rays of the already eclipsed Sun should be visible around 8:50am, the maximum being at 9:09am. The end of the partial eclipse will occur around 10:30am.
The weather that can be expected is available here.
