The Total Solar Eclipse on the morning of Friday March 20th will not have Ireland covered in total shadow: the path of totality is closer to the Faroe Islands.

Ireland will get 90-91% of the solar disc blocked out by the Moon, maximum darkness appearing at 09:26hrs Irish Time. Even so, there will be diminished heat and light, and the subject matter will still warrant safe observing! This is a great outreach and observing opportunity, so make the most of it!
