    Tomorrow there will be an unique ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse as the moon passes in front of the sun.

    There are in between 2 and 5 solar eclipses every year, however these are not to be puzzled with overall solar eclipses, which are much rarer. 

    The last UK overall solar eclipse was on 11 August 1999 and we aren’t due to see another one from Britain till 23 September 2090. 

    Annular eclipses are the more typical phenomenon, although they cannot be seen by all nations and parts of the world each time. 

    The Royal Observatory Greenwich discusses: ‘When the Moon is not at its closest to the Earth its apparent diameter is less than that of the Sun and even where the Moon’s disk obscures the Sun centrally, the external ring of the Sun’s disk is still noticeable. This is called an annular eclipse.’

    The ‘Ring of Fire’ phenomenon is an annular eclipse, called after the brilliant external ring of the sun that will show up behind the moon – however it will just show up from particular nations.  

    What time is the solar eclipse tomorrow and will we have the ability to see it in the UK?

    Unfortunately for those people in UK, the solar eclipse on 21 June 2020 won’t show up from Britain.

    Tomorrow’s annular eclipse can be identified by those in South and East Europe, much of Asia, the North of Australia, much of Africa and the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

    The time that the solar eclipse will show up in each of these nations will differ depending upon the time zone. 

    For example, according to in New Delhi the annular eclipse will be finest noticeable around midday regional time (IST)  whereas in Japan the phenomenon will be finest seen in between 5pm and 6pm regional time (JST).
