We haven’t had a full solar eclipse in the UK since 1999, and nor will we again until 2090. However, next month we’re scheduled a partial solar eclipse, which still ought to look pretty darn impressive. At 8.45am on Friday March 20 the moon will start muscling in on the sun’s space until the eclipse reaches its fullest at 9.31am and the capital gets very dark indeed – experts reckon we’ll lose up to 84 percent of our light. Best start working on those pinhole projectors now.
