Thoroughly eclipsed

I got caught up in eclipse excitement  this morning and was most excited to glimpse it through the clouds, although my talented astronomer dad managed to capture much better images than I.

It was hard work spotting anything from my back garden but it was pretty eerie. The birds all retreated to the trees and started their evening chorus.

Dad managed to capture the eclipse from start to finish, you can even see the sunspots. 

Catch up soon!
