Look it up right away! In parts of the UK, a partial solar eclipse begins under gloomy sky.
The moon is passing between the Earth and the sun, causing a partial solar eclipse in the UK and around the world.
In what is known as an annular eclipse, skygazers will soon be able to witness nearly a third of the sun blotted out by the moon.
However, because to hazy skies, views of the event may be “somewhat fleeting” in some regions of the UK, according to forecasts.
According to the Met Office, residents in central and south-east England will have clear spells to watch the celestial show.
When the sun and moon are perfectly aligned with the Earth, but the moon’s apparent size is smaller than the sun, an annular eclipse occurs.
In a phenomena known as the “ring of fire,” the sun appears as a very bright ring, or annulus.
Because this is a partial eclipse, spectators in the UK and Ireland will witness a crescent sun instead of a ring, weather permitting.
The Met Office has predicted that clouds would blanket the skies in most areas of the UK, while most regions will remain dry, with “clear spells over much of central and south-east England.”
The “ring of fire” will be visible from Russia, Greenland, and northern Canada, according to Dr Emily Drabek-Maunder, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.
“From the UK, the annular solar eclipse will be a partial eclipse, meaning we will only see the moon pass in front of a little section of the sun,” she told the PA news agency.
According to Dr. Drabek-Maunder, the event will begin in the United Kingdom around 10.08 a.m. on June 10, with the greatest eclipse occurring at 11.13 a.m., when the moon will cover about one-third of the sun.
At 12:22 p.m., the partial eclipse will end.
Despite the fact that a huge portion of the solar disc will be obscured, staring at the partially eclipsed sun without proper protection can inflict serious and irreversible eye damage.
