However, due to sudden weather changes, it is unlikely that the event will be visible from all corners of the country, Morgunblaðið reports.
According to the Icelandic Meteorological Office, cloudy weather is forecast and it is primarily in the southwestern region that people will have a good view of the sky.
The visibility is expected to be poorest in east Iceland where precipitation is forecast and in the north where the sky will likely be overcast.
