Skygazers are in for a treat this week, with a partial solar eclipse due to be visible as the moon passes between the earth and the sun.
On Thursday, June 10 morning, nearly a third of the sun will be blocked out by the passing moon in what is known as an annular solar eclipse.
The partial eclipse is expected to begin at around 10.10am in the UK.
The maximum eclipse is set to occur at 11.13am, with the moon covering a third of the sun.
The partial eclipse is due to end at 12.22pm.
