Good weather means most of us can spot with the naked eye a partial solar eclipse over the UK today.

Solar eclipses occur between two and five times a year, with a total eclipse happening every 18 months or so.

An eclipse is when the sun, moon and earth are aligned, and the moon casts a shadow over the earth.

The difference between a full and partial eclipse is that a full eclipse causes an annulus, a bright ring of light, while a partial eclipse creates a crescent shape.

Although the sun is mostly covered by the moon, it can still be dangerous to look directly at it, and so some people purchase solar eclipse viewing glasses or make their own to view it.
