The Sun might not have his hat on… but he is smiling!

Around 100 people gathered at the Baird Centre to watch the eclipse this morning.
Unfortunately heavy cloud cover meant we didn’t have much need for our special eclipse viewers. We did notice it get much darker and colder and occasional breaks in the clouds gave the most patient amongst us brief glimpses of the eclipse.
The clouds didn’t spoil the event though – we had live streams from other sites projected inside the building so we could enjoy the full spectacle while munching on our breakfast rolls. Astronomy themed quizzes and a disco which was out of this world completed the morning’s entertainment.
