NEARLY one-third of the sun will be blocked out by the moon in a partial solar eclipse today.
Some parts of the northern hemisphere will experience a total eclipse, as some countries face a near blackout overhead this morning.
The phenomenon – also known as the ring of fire – is an annular solar eclipse that takes place every year in different areas of the world.
And those in the UK and US will be lucky enough to catch it.
A partial eclipse will dawn over the UK from around 11.13am BST while it will be visible across the northern parts of North America at various different times.
