The much anticipated solar eclipse, set to happen on Monday afternoon, will hit the skies of London and surrounding areas starting at 1:06p.m.

Western University is inviting anyone interested in watching the moon pass over the sun to attend the University College Hill to watch it safely.

This is a free event, and glasses will be provided also for free for safety.

Although we are not going to see the full eclipse, scientists say we will be able to see the moon cover 75% of the sun in London.

The eclipse is expected to end around 3:48pm.
