Today was the day we have been anticipating and it's received much in the way of publicity from the media.
Billed as the best solar eclipse in years I personally found it quite disappointing.
Throughout Britain the eclipse reached at least 83% with the darkness peaking around 09:35 - variations depending on your actual location.
For me it didn't darken much at all and I was expecting it to get quite dark.
These images were taken with 400mm zoom lens and cropped. I used the Lee 'Big Stopper' filter to achieve a dark image and detail as best I could the passage of the moon across the sun.
We will not see another solar eclipse on this scale again until 2026.
