Words from Prof Giles Harrison
“This is the first big partial eclipse to happen in the UK since 1999, and the next one isn’t until August 2026, so this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity.
“By observing what happens on Friday we are effectively turning the skies of Britain into a giant weather lab, giving us a rare chance to see what happens when you ‘turn down the Sun’.
“This will give us a precious insight into how the Sun influences the clouds and wind, as well as more obvious effects, such as temperature.
“By improving our understanding of how the weather works, we’re better able to predict it, meaning scientists can further improve weather forecasts.”
