Get a heads up on the best celestial events to observe

Just a timely reminder for those of you who remember what the Sun looks like that there will be a partial eclipse of the Sun today. It begins at 9.45am & ends at 11.25am. These times are UT - so you will need to add an hour for BST. The eclipse will also be the main focus point on The Sky at Night programme next Sunday. The Sun will be about 20% covered as seen from the UK.
Wishing you all clear skies for the event. [:)]
