Millions Witness Best Solar Eclipse in Years

Skygazers in the UK witnessed the rare solar eclipse on Friday. The partial eclipse has started in the south of the UK, giving enthusiasts a chance to witness a rare celestial phenomenon.

Europeans got their first glimpse through cloudy skies in Spain`s Canary Islands in the early morning. Later, enthusiasts in Newquay, Cornwall got a clear view of first contact of the eclipse.
Even people in Swedish capital, Stockholm witnessed the rescent-shaped sun shone through overcast skies. Eclipse enthusiasts were less lucky in Denmark`s far-flung Faroe Islands.

It’s a rare celestial occurrence when the moon will cover the sun, blocking out its light. It is also being seen as the biggest solar eclipse for 15 years, since the UK was plunged into darkness in 1999 and until 2026.
