Reader’s stunning eclipse video

The eclipse may be old news now but I love astronomy, so it’s never too late to find some ‘space’ for it in Simply Sims.

Reader Robin Cowan of the Luton and Dunstable Cycling Forum (he of Daleks on the busway fame) sent me in the photo above of the solar sensation which he took when he was on holiday last week.

He said: “I went up to the Faroes last week, with my parents and saw the eclipse. No clouds, very lucky, only 10 minutes either side of eclipse were cloud free.

“This is the second cloud-free eclipse we have seen, saw the 1999 eclipse in France.”

He also took the great footage which you can view above. Check out about a minute into the video.
