Are you ready for the Solar Eclipse 2015?

March 19, 2015

A few lucky places will be able to witness a solar eclipse tomorrow. Here are a few facts.

Different people that solar eclipses happen for a variety of reasons. Some people thought solar eclipses heralded the end of the world and other ancient cultures thought that demons would come out during the time of darkness.

In fact, some people are still very superstitious and regard solar eclipses as unlucky.

So where can you see this eclipse tomorrow? Well only some parts of the world will be able to see a partial eclipse, and there's only one place in the world to see a full one. Congratulations if you live in the Faroe Islands, just off the coast of the UK.

It will pass over Greenland, the North Atlantic, the UK and Europe. If you're in the UK, then between 8.30-9.30am GMT will be the most ideal time to view it.

But just remember that you should never look directly at a solar eclipse as you could get burnt and blinded. Don't try to watch the eclipse with sunglasses or try to take a picture on your phone either. Both of these things will result in damage to your eyes. Ouch! Many observatories will have special equipment set up for members of the public, including the Royal observatory in Greenwich.

The eclipse will also be streamed online, for those of you outside of the UK who are interested in seeing it.

Are you superstitious about solar eclipses? If you think Friday could be a lucky or unlucky time for you then talk to one of our psychics who can ease your mind.
