So it's all over and we won't see another solar eclipse above the UK until 2026. Here are the highlights from today's event.
- Total eclipse was seen above the Faroe Islands
- Parts of Scotland saw about 95% of the Sun's light blocked out
- Cloud coverage meant many parts of the UK missed out on seeing the event
- The next total solar eclipse will take place on the 8 March 2016 and will be visible from Sumatra, Borneo and Sulawesi

Not long now. When the eclipse is at its peak, birds are expected to stop singing with the darkening sky triggering night-time behaviour. In previous eclipses, animals have been observed hiding.
Chris Hickman of the Woodland Trust told the Telegraph: "The main thing seems to be it goes quiet. As you might expect the birds are temporarily confused into thinking it's night time. It was quite noticeable [at the last eclipse] in 1999."

If you are missing the total eclipse because of clouds, you only have to wait 11 years for the next one. Another "deep" partial eclipse will take place on 12 August 2026. However, the next total eclipse will not take place above UK skies until September 2090.
