A partial solar eclipse occurred on December 12, 1909. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon's shadow misses the Earth. This event was visible as a partial solar eclipse across 24-hour daylight Antarctica.
