Skygazers will be able to see a partial solar eclipse this morning as the moon passes between the earth and the sun. 

The partial eclipse is expected to begin at around 10.10am in the UK, as nearly a third of the sun will be blocked out by the passing moon known as an annular solar eclipse. 

The maximum eclipse is set to occur at 11.13am, with the moon covering a third of the sun. 

The partial eclipse is due to end at 12.22pm.
