[Timing Details]
On Friday, 20 March, the Moon will completely cover the Sun, creating a celestial wonder that only a small part of the world will get to witness.

A total solar eclipse for 2015 will occur on 20 March. 
The total solar eclipse 2015, which is occurring on the spring equinox, will be a hybrid eclipse of sorts, which means in some countries it will be a total eclipse, while in others it will look like an annular eclipse.
But that is not all, there are two other other rare celestial events that will be taking place before the solar eclipse: a Supermoon and the Spring equinox. A Supermoon, or perigee moon, happens when the full or new moon passes the closest by the Earth, making it look way bigger that what it normally is. And during the spring equinox, the day and night are of equal duration.
The eclipse will be most prominent over North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. The eclipse will start from Greenland and will work its way counterclockwise towards the northeast, while passing by Iceland and the United Kingdom.
The total solar eclipse will be the first since 3 November 2013 and in the United Kingdom, it will the deepest eclipse since 1999, and it will remain so until 2026.

For this eclipse, up to 97% of the Sun will be blocked out.
