Epic Eclipse!

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page


Many people in the UK and Europe witnessed the most breathtaking solar eclipse in years.

This amazing show of the sun took place today around 9am-9.30am and was an extraordinary sight for younger viewers, who had never seen such a thing.

However this beautiful viewing did have its dangers, everyone had to be aware of the sun affecting their retinas. To have a peek, many spent money on a few pairs of sunglasses.

One local schoolboy commented, “It was unbelievable because I had never seen one before but it was good we had the glasses given to us to view it through.”

We will not experience a solar eclipse like this again until 2026.
