Solar Eclipse

This totally wasn't my planned post for today, but this morning's eclipse was so spectacular that I just had to share my pictures with you. It was amazing how cold and dark it got, it was like night time in the middle of the morning!



The sky went dark and it suddenly got very cold and windy as the moon passed in front of the sun, so eerie!


A solar eclipse occurs when the moon, the sun and the Earth line up, causing the moon to obscure the sun. The eclipse that Britain saw today was only a partial eclipse - the last total eclipse was in 1999-  which meant that the sun wasn't completely blocked out. Nevertheless, it was incredible to experience and won't happen again until 2026!

Did you see the eclipse today?

Lots of love,
