A total solar eclipse occurred on November 19, 1816. 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 total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide.

Observations[edit]

From Germany, this total eclipse could not be seen with clouded sky except by few observers at Pomerania only.[1]

Capel Lofft observed this eclipse from Ipswich.[2]
