    List of solar eclipses visible from the United Kingdom 1000–2090 AD - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    4 January 2011
    A partial eclipse, which is nowhere total, can be seen at sunrise in south-east England, where with a favourable south-eastern horizon a Sun 75% covered by the Moon may be seen.

    20 March 2015
    An eclipse which is total across the north Atlantic including the Faroe Islands will result in a large partial eclipse across the UK, greater than 80% everywhere.

    11 August 2018
    A very small partial eclipse on the northern coast of Scotland, Orkney and Shetland.

    10 June 2021
    An eclipse which is annular across Canada and the Arctic gives rise to partial eclipse across Britain ranging from 50% in northern Scotland to 30% in south-east England.

    25 October 2022
    An eclipse which is nowhere total results in a partial eclipse across Britain with north-east Scotland the most favoured, at around 35% falling to less than 20% in Cornwall.

    23 September 2090
    Total Solar Eclipse: the next total eclipse visible in the UK follows a track similar to that of 11 August 1999, but shifted slightly further north and occurring very near sunset. Maximum duration in Cornwall will be 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Same day and month as the eclipse of 23 September 1699.

    I was out getting some milk in 1999 and watched it from the street. You could actually look at the sun and not see shining lights :lol:

    It was a good experience and only last a few seconds I think. A minute at the most.
