Stargazers set for rare eclipse

Stargazers from Britain and beyond are making their way to the North of Scotland, hoping to catch a glimpse of this weekend’s much anticipated annular eclipse.

The rare phenomenon will take place in the early hours of tomorrow morning when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, forming an annulus, often described as a ring of fire, around the moon.

As well as experts and laymen of the astronomical world, those expected to travel north to see the eclipse include pagans, druids and sun-worshipers.

Among those due to be present at the event were veteran sky-watcher Sir Patrick Moore and Queen guitarist Brian May, who is also a qualified astronomer.
