Eclipse

There's going to be an eclipse on the 3rd October this year

Quote: 31 May 2003 - Annular Solar Eclipse (Saros 147, umbral mag. 0.938, max. eclipse 04:08 UT
annular: 03:44:53 UT to 04:31:28 UT)
An annular eclipse -- the first central (ie. not partial) eclipse in its series -- covers the top of the Earth, and partly misses it entirely. It will be seen in most of the Highlands, including Inverness, the Orkneys, Shetlands, and Lewis (as well as Iceland and large parts of Greenland), at around dawn. The rest of the UK will see the Sun rise partially eclipsed. The next eclipse in the triple-Saros series will happen on Jul 1, 2057, but will not be visible in Britain. However, two eclipses later in the same Saros series, an eclipse is visible in central Britain on Jul 23 2093.



It'll start at around 07.45 and finish about 10.15 depending whereabouts you are in the UK !!

Thanks for that Fee.

Unfortunately I'll either forget about it or there'll be low lying cloud and I probably won't be able to see much anyway as I don't have a clear view of the sunrise.
Pah!

I found this on a forum u mentioned in another thread.

I like eclipses but I think u have quoted the wrong one. It's from 2003?

Ooops. This was the link I thought I'd posted. I was trying to find out what an annular eclipse was (big expert me :laugh: )

The times are right though apparently.

Thanks :thumbsup:

Annular eclipse is what u get when the moon doesn't cover the whole sun at any time so u get a bright ring. U should never look at it without a filter or proper eclipse glasses.

BTW ur link only shows universal times. u need to adjust for bst Wink
