Best solar eclipse in years creeps across Earth

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 will peak at about 09:35.
Experts are warning people not to look directly at the phenomenon.
This is because even during the eclipse, looking directly at the Sun causes serious harm - but there are ways to watch the eclipse safely and many people are looking for a chance to do so.
