Cloudy skies didn’t spoil the view for some as a solar eclipse took place this morning.

The partial eclipse – which happens when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth and partially blocks the former, casting a shadow over the latter – started at around 9am.

The Letchworth and District Astronomical Society had four gazebos set up in Leys Avenue housing a screen with a live feed from NASA showing the eclipse, which a number of people gathered to watch.
