A spectacular event is occuring on Friday 20th March 2015

The UK will experience a near-total solar eclipse which is due to block out the light of the sun in Britain, leaving parts of the UK shrouded in 99% darkness on Friday.

Although total eclipses can be seen somewhere on Earth every year or so, they are rarely seen in Europe. The eclipse this week,  will be the first in Britain in this century.

It will start approximately 8am on Friday morning.....

Very little need for that......cloud cover will be so dense that we won't even notice the partial eclipse


You will but only a little, if it's cloudy you probably could go without noticing. 

animals do though, they act all odd during an eclipse, especially birds.

Yes I've seen birds acting oddly, obviously affected by different phases of the moon. There again it could just be the effects of Sang Som....
