People across Europe were treated to a rare celestial event as a partial solar eclipse graced the evening skies, coinciding with the total eclipse sweeping across North America.

In North America, the eclipse path extended from Mexico through the US to Canada, enveloping regions like Mexico, US, and Canada in complete darkness. On the other side of the Atlantic, observers in the UK and Ireland eagerly awaited a glimpse of the partial eclipse, with cities like Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Belfast, and Stornoway gearing up for the astronomical spectacle.

The Royal Observatory Greenwich in London was abuzz with anticipation as senior astronomer Dr. Edward Bloomer shared insights on the limited visibility of the eclipse, highlighting how regions in the west and north of the UK were in a prime position for observation.

Meanwhile, across Europe, eyes turned towards the skies as the partial eclipse, though brief, offered a captivating experience for spectators in certain regions. Cities like Limerick and Cork in Ireland, and Manchester, Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham, Norwich, and Newcastle in the UK witnessed a sliver of the eclipse, provided clear skies cooperated.

As the celestial display unfolded, NASA stepped in to stream the eclipse live, ensuring that even those outside the visibility zone could witness the event virtually. The agency’s broadcast brought the cosmic event to screens across the globe, uniting enthusiasts in a shared moment of astronomical wonder.

Looking ahead, rare opportunities for witnessing total eclipses loom on the horizon. Greenland, Gibraltar, and the Saudi peninsula are marked for a total eclipse on August 12, 2026, while northern Russia awaits its turn on August 2, 2027. However, the UK’s next chance to witness a total eclipse won’t come until 2090, a date eagerly awaited by sky-watchers across the country.
