A partial eclipse will take place on Tuesday morning (October 25)
The eclipse will be visible from Ireland and throughout Europe.
From Ireland the best time to see the eclipse will be between 10am and 12 noon.
Partial solar eclipses happen when, from a particular location on Earth, only part of the Sun’s disc is covered by the Moon’s disc.
It can be highly dangerous to view the Sun and a partially eclipsed Sun is just as dangerous – perhaps more so as people will be drawn to looking at it. NEVER look at the Sun with ANY optical aid (binoculars or telescopes) as permanent eye damage can happen instantly. It is not even safe to look at the Sun with just the naked eye and even several pairs of sunglasses should not be used.
Scattered showers in the west and south tomorrow morning will spread northwards. There will also be hazy sunny spells. Becoming mostly cloudy with persistent and locally heavy rain spreading from the south later in the afternoon and through the evening. Highest temperatures of 13 to 17 degrees with moderate to fresh southeasterly winds developing, further increasing strong at times with the arrival of the rain.
