BETWEEN 8.57 and 11.29am on Friday morning Spain will enter a time of darkness, as the country experiences its most impressive eclipse in a decade.
The passage of the moon in front of the sun, although spectacular, will not be a ‘total’ eclipse in this part of Europe – this will be visible only in Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Greenland and far northern Europe. According to Spain’s National Astronomical Observatory, the maximum eclipse, of around 90 per cent, will be visible at just after 10.00am.
That should be the case – but this of course depends to a large extent on the weather, with current forecasts for the end of the week predicting unstable weather conditions.
A sunshine and showers prediction is currently given in the south of Spain. Keep your fingers crossed and hope for a clear morning on Friday!
