Solar eclipse 2015

8.26am this morning saw the start of the solar eclipse. This one is visible from all over the UK but from Cambridge we’ll only see 3/4 of the sun covered. The eclipse will be at its fullest at 9.33am and by 10.43am it will all be over. The Institute of Astronomy are hosting a public event with talks, live video links to places where the eclipse it at its fullest and a chance to view from the observatories. Elspeth, Andres and I are at home trying desperately to see it but sadly there is just too much cloud cover that the moment. It might, we have decided, be a little darker now than it was when we woke up.
