90% Solar Eclipse – 20th March 2015


A 90% Partial Solar Eclipse was visible in the North East in March 2015. There was a lot of cloud, but the eclipse could clearly be seen. The peak of the eclipse was around 9:30am. The main noticeable thing was a marked drop in temperature and the birds began to roost, thinking it was dusk.

Here’s a video taken in Spennymoor, from the Durham Telly YouTube channel
