Vale witnesses eclipse despite cloud

Evesham Editorial 20th Mar, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

EVESHAM and Pershore residents joined millions across the UK and northern Europe to witness the solar eclipse.

Although cloud threatened to spoil the event, a number of Observer readers captured the moment the moon came between us and the Sun.

Across the Vale, the eclipse saw at least 83 per cent of the Sun covered by the moon with the peak darkness occuring around 9.31am on Friday (March 20).

Students from schools such as Blackminster Middle School and The De Montfort School were among those out to witness the special event.




Among those to capture the eclipse was Jude from roadracingsupporters.com who tweeted the view from Pershore.

Pershore High School headteacher Clive Corbett provided the cloudy view from the roof of the school’s main admin building.


Fiona Legge sent us a dramatic view from Broadway and Rachel Eliston from www.elistonbutton.com sent us another cloudy view from Evesham.

Clear viewing opportunities were restricted by the cloud cover that shrouded much of the country, which will not see a solar eclipse on this scale again until 2026.

This fantastic view from Broadway was sent to us by Fiona Legge. (s)
