Partial eclipse visible from Tenerife on Friday

... although the Canaries will only have a partial eclipse of around 50%, it will still be something to see as the sky dims, even if cloud cover blocks sight of the actual eclipse itself. It’s going to be the last total solar eclipse visible in Europe until 2026, and in Tenerife, the phenomenon will last just under a couple of hours, from 7.45 to 9.39am.

Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
