Friday Illustration: Partial Solar Eclipse


I love a good celestial event, so make sure you dont miss the partial solar eclipse this morning when the moon will move (partially!) in front of the sun and can be seen across the North Atlantic. In the UK it will begin at 8.45am and with its peak at 9.30am and will finish about 10.40am. I remember the 1999 solar eclipse, we were in France and made a pinhole thing to see it with. Hopefully it's not too cloudy as the next partial one (to be seen from the UK) isn't until 2026 and the next total solar eclipse wont be until 2090, which I'm unlikely to be around for!
