Our observation results of some effects in the geospace plasma during the partial (phase about 0.42) solar eclipse (SE) on 1 August 2008 are presented. The experimental data were obtained using the incoherent scatter radar of the Institute of Ionosphere (near Kharkiv city). The SE caused a decrease of density in the F2 layer maximum by 32 %, a decrease in the critical frequency f0F2 by 17.5 %, and an increase in the maximum F2 layer height by 3 km. At heights from 290 to 680 km the electron density decreased by about 25 %. During SE a decrease in the electron and ion temperatures by 70-180 and 0–140 K, respectively, within the height range from 190 to 490 km was observed. Plasma transport velocity vertical component near the main SE phase decreased by 10–55 m/s in the height range 200–530 km. The relative density of the hydrogen ions at heights of 900 and 1200 km decreased by 10–20 % i n the moment of the main SE phase.
