UK Solar Eclipse 2015

 

Last Friday morning many people in the UK were invited to view a partial (near total) solar eclipse. Luckily being based in the East Midlands of England meant we were in a good region for witnessing the 2015 Eclipse.

With live footage being beamed from the BBC on our laptop and our solar glasses in hand my family and I relaxed in our back garden for the stunning cosmic event.

The sky got darker, the earth got colder and the birds went silent as the solar eclipse reached its climax. Watching the moon go past the sun whilst sitting on earth was both a magical and humbling experience!
