Watch the eclipse at the Royal Observatory Greenwich

There's a partial solar eclipse this morning, which, we are told, will reach it's peak at about 9.30am, when 84 % of the sun will be gone. We're not supposed to look at it with the naked eye, but thanks to Londonist's Where To Watch The Partial Solar Eclipse In London article, it's easy to find some people with telescopes and the like to help us look.

The eclipse continues from  8.25am to about 10.40am and Londonist's M@ tells us that the Royal Observatory in Greenwich will be opening at 8am to allow us to see the eclipse, whilst the Flamsteed Astronomy Society will have their big telescopes out in front of the General Wolfe statue in Greenwich Park.
