The weather wasn’t perfect but we saw the partial eclipse of the Sun through the clouds as did almost a 1000 others on our YouTube live stream.

Mark Phillips streamed the eclipse from his observatory on the western edge of Edinburgh and David Small also provided video from Kelso when Edinburgh was clouded out. Lots of activity on Twitter about the event as well as a large audience on YouTube.

ASE members also took some amazing images from Edinburgh and surrounding areas. You can see more of them on our Flickr group but here are a few of them:
