For the people of the North West it was just that little bit too cloudy to get a proper look at the solar eclipse.
The sky did get noticeable darker at around 9.30a.m. but any proper view of the eclipse will have to be viewed on television.
In a solar eclipse, a swathe of the Earth is plunged into darkness as the Moon comes between us and the Sun.
This process began at 07:41 GMT and the deepest part of the Moon’s shadow touched the Earth’s surface at 09:13 GMT. It reached the UK at 09:23, where the darkness peaked at 09:35.
It’s thought that people in Northern Scotland had the best view of the eclipse.
