When is the next eclipse?
The next partial solar eclipse, like the one on Thursday, will occur on October 25, 2022 and will be visible from the UK.
During this event, it’s expected up to one-quarter of the sun will be obscured from view.
Going forward, the next full solar eclipse to take place in the UK is decades away.
During this eclipse on September 23, 2090, people in Cornwall and much of England’s southern coast will see a ring of fire in the sky for three minutes and 36 seconds, just minutes before the sun sets.
