Damian Peach took this image of Friday's solar eclipse from Devon. He writes:

"Up at 4:30am for a ~150 mile drive to a location where the skies were forecast much clearer than at home (where it was completely overcast.) For once the forecast was spot on and my location between Bideford and Hartland in Devon, UK yielded near ideal conditions throughout the event. Rather misty at times but this really added to the overall event.

"This is a composite image of the eclipse made from multiple exposures taken during the course of the eclipse. Around 87% of the solar disk was covered at maximum."
