Solar Eclipse June 01

the Partiality Phase of this Eclipse is only for those within the 'Arctic Circle' however. But I may have a inkling that myself being on the 53N latitude in Northern England I may see some darkening of the Northern Horizon as the Moons Shadow passes overhead to the North. With it still astronomical twilight at 9pm here this time of year the darkening may be less-so evident, but worth a shot at looking for.

I be surprised if there is any difference, its not a particularly deep partial eclipse and you don't really notice anything unless its 80%>. I noticed during the annular eclipse of 2003, before sunrise, the light level did dip at the time of maximum eclipse but that was a 90%+ eclipse. This eclipse occurs on the other side of the hemisphere. Shetland Islands might even just catch a tiny portion of this eclipse.

To be honest looking at the facts, I don't think you will see anything.

That's what was making me slightly optimistic in the fact the Northern Twilight to the North is predominantly casted by the Sun from the Arctic Circle region and I was assuming that any slight dip in light might also be evident from the 52' Latitudes and upwards, rather than the direct effect of the Partial Solar Eclipse itself being seen. But I guess even if it was possible the dimness of twilight to the North would barely be evident anyway.
