Eclipse New Moon To Cause Highest Tide in Decades

Budge

As Slooh broadcasts the Total Solar Eclipse on March 20th from the Faroe Islands, the spectacle in its sights will also be causing quite a stir to the south along the rugged coast of Brittany–exceptionally large spring tides. The phenomenon began shortly after 9am on Saturday, February 28th, as the tide on France’s western coast reached a coefficient of 117 on a scale of 120. This high tide was the first in nearly a month of remarkable water surges due to culminate on March 20th and 21st with tidal coefficients of 118 on 119 respectively, a height only achieved every 18 years, and which will coincide with the total solar eclipse.
