Eclipse March 20, 2015 United Kingdom in the darkness
Largest solar eclipse since 1999 Europe will be blocked in some areas of the United Kingdom, as much as 90 percent of the sun’s light.
On 20 March at 09.31 clock London will lose as much as 84 percent of the sunlight, while parts of Scotland such as Edinburgh are blocked with 94 percent of the light out to be even darker.
Astronomers believe that the eclipse will begin in London at 8.45 clock, it will then reaches its maximum eclipse at 09.31 with normal service to be resumed at 10.41.

The rest of us but must make do with the second larger and fainter shadow to cover the UK and much of Europe. This shadow is not caused by a partial solar eclipse where the moon and sun are directly in line with the earth. Although less impressive it is still able to walk more than 90 percent of the light.
Total solar eclipses are surprisingly rare. The last in Europe has happened in 1999 and the next time you will see a total solar eclipse in the UK only be 2090.
Luckily, there are many partial eclipses between now and then with some potentially as as powerful as this. The next solar eclipse will be in 2016, but that’s probably incredibly small. For the next big solar eclipse you must to 2026, where astronomers believe it will wait as much of the light as of March 20, remove event.
