The phenomenon is not expected to be repeated until 2026, while the last partial eclipse over Poland was in 2011.
Parts of Poland will be able to observe an eclipse of up to 76 percent, but the average will be closer to around 60 percent, experts say.
The eclipse will start at 09.39 in the south west of the country, and end at 12.12 in the north east.
Experts warn that looking directly at the sun, even during a partial eclipse could cause permanent retinal damage. (rg)
