Eclipse turns day into night

On Friday, people across the UK watched a very rare solar eclipse, where the Moon covered up the Sun.

The UK saw a partial eclipse, where a bit of the Sun still shone out from behind the Moon.

There were worries that cloudy weather would spoil the view across the UK, but thankfully some areas had a clear sky for the special moment.

A total solar eclipse was seen in the Faroe Islands, a group of islands north of Scotland.

This speeded up footage shows the moment the islands were plunged into darkness as the Moon blocked the light from the Sun.
