More than 80% of the Sun will be covered by the Moon. A total solar eclipse will be visible from The Faroe Islands and Svalbard.
The next time a decent partial eclipse will be visible from the UK of this magnitude will be 12 Aug 2026. After that the next total solar eclipse for the UK will be 23 Sept 2090. The previous one was the very cloudy day of 11 Aug 1999.
To observe safely you will need glasses or to project the Sun onto card through a telescope.
Never look directly at the Sun, especially through a telescope or binoculars, your eyes will be damaged.
