One is a total solar eclipse when the moon passes directly in front of the sun and blocks our view of the sun.
This morning the partial eclipse began at 8.02am UT (9.02am BST) with the Moon beginning to encroach on the Sun.
But so central was the July 27 lunar eclipse, with the moon passing nearly directly through the middle of Earth's shadow, that it allowed for not just one, but two partial solar eclipses: one that occurred two weeks before the lunar eclipse, and another on august 11 (two weeks afterward).
The eclipse will start at 4:02 a.m. The peak of the eclipse will be around 11:46am CEST, ending around 1:30pm CEST.
