An Extremely Rare Sunrise Coming To Bismarck
A partial solar eclipse sunrise will be visible over Bismarck and the rest of North Dakota coming up on June 10th. According to the National Weather Service in Bismarck, this is a very rare phenomena and will only be visible for a very short time. You'll be able to see this partial solar eclipse sunrise at 5:48 am (Bismarck time) and will end at 5:53 am. That's right, it will only be visible for a very short 5 minutes.
So, what will it look like exactly? The sun will rise over North Dakota and the region, looking like a crescent sun. Much like you would see with a crescent moon. Again, you will only be able to witness this for a very short time. 5 minutes in our neck of the woods.
You are reminded to never look directly at the sun. It can damage your eyes and even cause blindness. Special glasses will be needed. Sunglasses will not work. Eclipse glasses or a sun filter is the only safe option.
According to an article on Forbes, this is the first solar eclipse visible from North America since 2017’s “Great American Eclipse."
If you are an "eclipse chaser" and the "crescent sunrise" doesn't float your boat, you have another option. This "crescent sunrise" will be visible as a "ring of fire" as the moon perfectly covers 88% of sun with only the outside of the sun visible, leaving a ring. Somebody cue Johnny Cash. The "ring of fire" sunrise eclipse will be visible in far northern Ontario, Canada. That path goes from remote regions of northeast Canada to Greenland, the North Pole and Siberia.
I would love to visit Greenland, but that's a long ways to go for 5 minutes. I think I'll stick it out around here.
