The United Kingdom was treated to one of the great natural wonders today, as the earth, the moon and the sun lined up to provide a stunning solar eclipse – which the grey British clouds moved to quickly block out.
That’s right, this morning’s once-in-a-generation event turned into a damp squib for many after Mother Nature made sure most of us would be staring at a melancholic wall of misery rather than a visual phenomenon.
Obviously it’s too much to ask to have one f*cking day of good weather across the whole of ‘Great’ Britain.
Luckily, the eclipse wasn’t a downer for everyone though. While most of us were looking up and wondering if it was all some kind of elaborate joke, people in certain areas of the country were snapping smugly away at the ‘astonishing event’ going on in the sky.
If you were one of the unlucky ones, here’s what you missed out on… And yes, you’ve probably got good reason to feel a little bit bitter. The next eclipse on this scale is not for another 11 years.
