Will you be looking at the solar eclipse? Be sure to protect your eyes!


On Friday, the UK will experience a partial solar eclipse – the moon will pass in front of the sun, putting much of the UK into a morning twilight. It is expected to take place in Devon at 9.31am. For many, this will be the first time they have witnessed the phenomenon in 15 years, but eye specialists are warning people to take care when viewing the eclipse for fear of causing permanent damage to your eyes.

The Royal Astronomical Society has issued information on the safest ways to view the eclipse.
