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.
