People across Ireland will be able to witness a partial solar eclipse tomorrow.
Almost half of the sun will be blocked out by the moon from around 10am until 12:30pm.
And people, we cannot stress this enough, do not look directly at the sun while the partial eclipse is happening.
David Moore from Astronomy Ireland says the cosmic event will be spectacular with up to 45% of the sun’s diameter expected to be covered.
People can also expect it to cool down by a few degrees during the eclipse and maybe even a dimming of the sky as a third of the light will be blocked out.
