Set to be amazed...

STARGAZERS and astronomers will be keeping a sharp eye on the skies tomorrow to witness an annular solar eclipse.

While it will be a sight to behold for northern regions in Australia, which will see a close-to-full eclipse, Warwick residents will witness a partial eclipse.

Warwick Astronomy and Astrophotography's David Carvosso said only one-third of the sun would be covered.

"It should start around 7.40am and go until 10.20am," he said.

"The maximum will be around 8.45-8.50am.

"You will be able to see it from anywhere in Warwick as long as the clouds are not out."

Mr Carvosso said it was important not to look directly at the sun during the eclipse with a naked eye.

Those wanting to see a total eclipse of the sun will have to wait until Monday, July 13, 2037.

Will you be watching Friday's solar eclipse?
