Some parts of the world have seen the annular eclipse or so-called ring of fire in full, but from the UK there has been a partial solar eclipse.
image caption“I’m a total amateur but have always had an interest in all things astronomical”, says Heather Mullan at Daviot in Aberdeenshire. “The filter was simply taken out of some cardboard eclipse viewing glasses and taped to the lens!”
image captionRyan Toomey caught the eclipse from Greenock complete with a “bird photobomb”. He said: “I had to use three pairs of sunglasses, stacked on top of each other, to view it with some level of protection”.
image captionMatt Tildesley captured this eclipse image at Embo beach in the Highlands.
image captionMax and Phoebe Coleman took a series of images in Ibstone, High Wycombe, using sunglasses as a filter for the camera.
image captionRoslin in Midlothian was the location for Rob Ward’s shot.

image captionColin Riach took this shot of the eclipse from Edinburgh on Thursday morning.
image captionAnother bird tried to steal the eclipse show, this time courtesy of Megg Fairey at Romney Sands in Kent. “As I went to take my picture, a seagull flew over just as I captured this beautiful experience!”
