The solar eclipse exact time on Friday March 20, 2015 will be different by city and location across the UK. The event is fast approaching with live streaming being offered by thousands of people that include schools and main stream media. If you didn’t manage to buy any solar eclipse glasses, then some live video coverage might be the next best thing if you live in the UK.
You can read about solar eclipse safety and watch a video on how to create a pinhole camera for watching the solar eclipse in our previous article, so you might just have enough time to create one, but certainly not time to purchase some safety glasses. Sky News along with other media will be in Skegness, at the Lincolnshire coast of the North Sea for one of the best chances to view.
Sadly, today looks pretty cloudy over most of the UK, so there’s worries many won’t be able to view the event unfold. As you can see with the image above, the viewability will range from 98 to 85 percent and this picture also includes the exact time by location in the UK.
As you can see above, the exact time for the Friday solar eclipse in London is 9:30am with 85 percent viewable. The time to view this solar eclipse in Aberdeen is 9:37am, Leeds 9:33am, Southampton 9:38am, Penzance 9:23am, and Belfast 9:30am.
You can watch live video coverage on most news channels in the UK, which includes Sky and BBC News. Many schools are taking part with children and some are streaming live, but online there’s the ability to watch live thanks to YouTube videos and we have included a countdown with stream below.
