Solar eclipse in Gran Canaria Solar eclipse in Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria and the Canary Islands are the first place to witness tomorrow's solar eclipse.

The eclipse starts at 07.45 and reaches it's peak at 08.39 when 46% of the sun will be behind the moon.

The weather forecast from Gran Canaria during the eclipse is mixed so part or all may be hidden behind the clouds.

If you really want to see it and it's cloudy at dawn, consider heading up to the cumbres where you stand the best chance of being above the clouds.

Watch this video for tips on how to watch the eclipse safely.
