For the first time since November 3, 2013, the Moon will completely cover the disk of the Sun on March 20, resulting in a total solar eclipse.
I wish I could have been in Europe to view the Solar Eclipse but I guess pictures still tell a thousand words.
On the morning of March 20, the UK will be plunged into darkness with a full solar eclipse - the likes of which we won't see again until 2026.
This is a rare form of eclipse that shifts between being a total solar eclipse and a an annular eclipse.


Solar eclipses happen, on average, 2.4 times a year but it's only very rarely that we see a full solar eclipse. In 2003, 2006, 2008 and 2011 there were solar eclipses visible from the UK, but they were all only partial. Although the upcoming solar eclipse will be a total eclipse for the UK, most of Europe, North Africa and Northern Asia will only see a partial eclipse.
Lunar eclipses As well as solar eclipses, there are also lunar eclipses that occur when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon.


You may not be aware of it, but there are four different types of solar eclipse: total, partial, annual and hybrid.
