Total Solar eclipse on August 21st 2017: Can we see it in the UK?

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will witness an eclipse of the sun for the first time in 99 years (The last time the USA experienced such a dramatic eclipse, American troops were fighting the Germans, in the trenches of northern France, during World War I !).
But even here in Britain we will get a view of a rare partial eclipse, where the Moon will pass in front of the Sun, casting darkness across swathes of the Earth's surface.
Dubbed "The Great American Eclipse", the moment will see the Sun, the Moon and the Earth become perfectly aligned in a once-in-a-lifetime celestial spectacle seen from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean.  Everyone in North America, parts of South America, Africa and Europe - including the UK - will see at least a partial solar eclipse, where the moon covers only a part of the sun.   However, 14 states across the United States will experience a total solar eclipse with more than two minutes of darkness descending in the middle of the day over the course of 100 minutes.   More than 12 million Americans live inside the path of totality and more than half of the nation live within 400 miles of it. Millions more are expected to travel to cities along the path to witness the phenomenon.
Anyone within the path of totality will see the sky become dark for several minutes as the moon completely covers the sun. The path is relatively thin, around 70 miles wide, and stretches from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.    It will first be seen at Lincoln Beach, Oregon at 9:05 PDT, with totality beginning at 10:16 PDT.  Over the next 90 minutes, it will cross through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and end near Charleston, South Carolina at 14:28 EDT.  The lunar shadow will leave the US at 04:09 EDT.   Its longest duration will be near Carbondale, Illinois, where the sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds.
The diameter of the Sun is 400 times that of the Moon but it lies 400 times further away - which means if you are in exactly the right alignment on the surface of the Earth at the right time, you will see the two celestial bodies overlap exactly.
Sadly, in the UK,  we will not get a total eclipse, like our friends across the pond, but we will be treated to a slight partial eclipse which will still be worth watching.   It will be visible in the Peak District, from around 19:40 to 20.20, with the maximum at 20.04. on August 21 - but, course, you need to try, to be in a spot where there's no cloud!   IF you get a good view - then you should see the moon shadow, clip a small crescent off bottom left, of the sun, just before sunset that day. 
BUT - Never look at the Sun unless you are wearing a pair of special eclipse glasses. These cost a few pounds each and will block out more than 99.9% of the Sun’s light. Check they bear a CE Kitemark, which means the glasses meet required safety standards. - More advice here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/zcytpv4

-UK Outlook for Sunday 20 Aug 2017 to Tuesday 29 Aug 2017:
Sunday will start off dry for many, but rain will spread across the northern half of the UK through the day, turning heavy at times. Elsewhere, it should stay generally fine and dry. Rain should then sink southeast on Monday, with showers in the north and west. Through the rest of the period, it will stay changeable on the whole with spells of rain, showers and strong winds at times, the heaviest of which are expected in the northwest. However, prolonged drier and brighter periods are likely between these spells of unsettled weather. Temperatures look set to remain around or a little below the average, although it may become generally warmer from the middle of next week.
UK Outlook for Wednesday 30 Aug 2017 to Wednesday 13 Sep 2017:
For the end of August and into the first part of September, we are most likely to see changeable weather conditions dominating across the UK. However, there is a chance of some more prolonged dry and fine weather at times too. As a result, on balance there are likely to be spells of rain and strong winds at times, especially across the north and west, which will then be interspersed with several days of drier and warmer weather. Temperatures may become warm or very warm at times across the south and southeast. However, they will remain generally close to normal for the time of year across the north and west.-
