"For the United States, this is 99 years since their last total solar eclipse".

So what are our chances here in the UK? The path of totality - the area experiencing the greatest periods of darkness when the moon covers the sun - is a 70 miles wide path cutting across North America.

A total solar eclipse is when the moon moves between the sun and Earth, lasting for up to about three hours from beginning to end. Here on the Sunshine Coast the partial eclipse means that the moon will eventually hide approximately 86 per cent of the sun's disk. Those in northern parts of the country are expected to have the best visibility.

This astronomical event will not be repeated until 2024 when Motl said the path of totality will be directly over Kokomo.
