Despite a cloudy morning, groups of workmates, friends and shoppers have gathered across east Lancashire to watch the solar eclipse.

Some 90% of the sun was obscured by the moon at the peak of the eclipse at 9-30am, visible through breaks in the cloud, and the light dulling.

Astronomers say the next eclipse of this magnitude will be in 2026.

Did you catch a glimpse of the eclipse, like this one taken from Live Like The Boy, in Colne’s main street? What are your thoughts ... was it the phenomenon you expected or a big disappointment?
