Stunning photos of this morning's solar eclipse

Stunning photos of this morning's solar eclipse
A total solar eclipse occurred this morning, captured in the Faroe Islands, and Svalbard.  A partial eclipse was visible from Scotland to northern Africa.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun.  The moon obscures our parent start and becomes a dark silhouette edged with light.  Because the moon blocks the sun's rays, it casts a shadow of darkness over a small part of Earth beneath it.  Lunar eclipses are different in that Earth comes between the sun and the moon.

Here are some images captured from people around the world of the eclipse.
