Clouds part just enough above Grantham for readers to take snaps of solar eclipse
Despite cloud obscuring most of the view, some readers still managed to get a glimpse of the partial solar eclipse in Grantham this morning (Thursday).
Reader Ian Sharp captured a snap from his garden in Gonerby Hill Foot.
He said: “For a brief moment, the cloud thinned for me to take this picture.”
Jonathan Turner, of Dysart Road, Grantham, captured a snap using his five-inch reflector telescope and DSLR camera.
He said: "A lucky break in the clouds today, managed to snap a quick image of the solar eclipse just as it was ending."
Solar eclipses happen when the moon comes between Earth and the sun, so that the moon leaves a shadow on Earth.
