Future UK solar eclipses



31 May 2003
Ah, this one’s not quite total, it’s only an annular eclipse, visible from the North of Scotland at dawn, including Inverness, the Orkneys, Shetlands, and Lewis.

20 Mar 2015
Ah, this one’s not quite visible from the British Isles, but the path crosses between Scotland and Iceland, over the Faroe Islands, and into the Arctic.

3 Sep 2081
Ah, this one’s not quite visible from mainland Britain. The Channel Islands will get a decent view, and the eclipse only narrowly misses the tip of Cornwall.

23 Sep 2090

Yes, at last a total eclipse does cross the mainland, south of a line from Minehead to Hastings. To get the best view you’ll need to be in, where else, Cornwall.

7 Oct 2135
Another total eclipse, this one just after sunrise, visible across central and southern Scotland and north-east England, from Dundee down to Bridlington.

25 May 2142
Ah, this one’s not quite visible from mainland Britain. The Channel Islands will get a decent view, and the eclipse narrowly misses the south coast of England.

14 Jun 2151
A total eclipse will be visible across southern Scotland, and northern and eastern England. It’s London’s first total eclipse since 1715, and it was 1151 before that.

4 Jun 2160
Bloody Cornwall again.

8 Nov 2189
Bloody Cornwall again.
