The fourth and last solar eclipse in 2011, which is expected on November 25, will see only the inhabitants of the high latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere: South Africa, New Zealand, Tasmania and Antarctica. According to Live Science, the solar eclipse will be clearly seen in Antarctica. While residents and tourists in New Zealand eclipse uvidyat only a quarter, on the Antarctic sun will be closed at 90%.
All who 25 November 2011 will be in the region can witness a truly unique spectacle — the solar eclipse. In Azerbaijan, November 25, 2011 partial solar eclipse will be observed.

7:23 — will begin partial solar eclipse for the earth;
9:19 — the maximum phase of the solar eclipse of the Earth;
11:15 — end of the partial solar eclipse of the Earth;
0.90 — the phase of the solar eclipse. Partial solar eclipse — occurs when the Moon's shadow cone passes near the Earth's surface, but it does not apply in this case, the solar eclipse is classified as private.
Phase of a solar eclipse — the value are complete solar eclipse. Maximum phase partial solar eclipse is usually expressed in hundredths of units, where 1 — the total phase of an eclipse. The total phase may be more than one, such as 1.01, if the diameter of the visible lunar disk larger than the diameter of the visible solar disk. Partial phases are marked 0.90, 0.85, and so on at the edge of the penumbra lunar phase is 0.
