On Friday 20th March 2015, a total solar eclipse occured across the far northern regions of Europe and the Artic. The eclipse’s longest duration of totality was 2 minutes and 46 seconds off the northern coast of the Faroe Islands. This was the last total solar eclipse in Europe for this decade. The next will happen on August 12th 2026.
From West Bromwich, the eclipse did not reach total phase but was visible as a partial solar eclipse with 92% coverage.
At Ryders Green we observed the solar eclipse as it happened and Heart FM reported from our school!
Have a look at our Solar Eclipse 2015 pictures for a closer look at what we did.
