A partial solar eclipse has started in Europe

The partial solar eclipse, which will be visible from Europe, northern Africa, the Middle East and Asia, became visible first in Reykjavik, Iceland, at 8:58 a.m. local time; where the sun would eventually be about 20 percent covered (sunrise was at 8:30 a.m.). By 11 a.m. in London, the moon blocked 15 percent of the sun. The shadow will be peak around 4 p.m. in Chelyabinsk in Russia’s southern Ural region, which is expected to get 79 percent coverage, before waning in New Delhi at 5:30 p.m. with 44 percent coverage.

Images of the eclipse began circulating on social media and in live streams early Tuesday, with photographers posting photos from across Europe and the Middle East.
