    ....tomorrow, 1st August.

    "In the UK, the eclipse will be partial and will last between 9:20 BST and 12:20 BST. From London only 20% of the Moon will cover the Sun; from Scotland, the Moon will cover 40% of the Sun."

    There's some interesting stuff here:

    If the weather`s anything like it is today the the chances of us seeing it are pretty slim. :mad:

    Although my laptop weather widget says it's raining in Norwich... it's actually blistering hot again. So please could you all send us yours. :D
