Best solar eclipse in years creeps across Earth
Solar eclipse creeps across Earth
Millions of people in the UK and northern Europe are witnessing the best solar eclipse in years.
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.
