Solar Eclipse

On Friday 20 March 2015, the whole of the UK will be treated to a partial eclipse of the Sun. These are quite rare, and this one will be a major event. That morning, the

Moon will pass right in front of the Sun, blotting out up to 90% of its disc. The Sun will look like a crescent instead of a disc, and there’ll be various other things to look for.

 

Please remember however, it is extremely dangerous to just go out and look up. The Sun is so bright that just looking at it can blind you.  We will safely be observing the Eclipse tomorrow using pinhole projectors.
