A supermoon, total solar eclipse and March equinox will all occur during March 20, 2015.
The Moon will turn new at 09:36 UTC which is about 13.5 hours after reaching its closest point to our planet (lunar perigee) and will thus appear larger in size and have a larger than average effect on our oceans (supermoon).
It will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible from our planet, but it will set stage for the first total solar eclipse since November 3, 2013, and the last total solar eclipse visible in Europe until August 12, 2026.
At 22:45 UTC, the Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This will be the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
Total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015
The path of totality for this eclipse will be limited to the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans between Greenland and northern Russia which means skywatchers in Europe, northern Africa, and northwestern Asia will be treated to a partial solar eclipse.
The longest duration of totality will be 2 minutes 47 seconds (at 09:45:24 UTC) off the coast of the Faroe Islands, in the Norwegian Sea. Moon’s shadow will resemble a huge eclipse about 463 km (288 miles) wide and 150 km (93 miles) long.
The only populated places, reachable by public travel, where the totality can be seen are the Faroe Islands and Svalbard archipelago. Unfortunately, chances for a clear sky there will be pretty slim.
