Onlookers were dazzled by the partial solar eclipse that was visible in the sky across the city.

About a quarter of the sun was blocked from 10 a.m. until almost noon Brighton as the moon passed between it and the earth.

Observers in Western Siberia in Russia had the best views, but the phenomenon could still be seen across the UK.

The clouds in Sussex parted to give a glimpse of the celestial phenomenon, and one Argus Camera Club photographer even spotted two sunspots.

According to NASA’s eclipse prediction calculator, the next partial solar eclipse visible from the UK will be on March 29, 2025.

However, stargazers hoping to see a total solar eclipse from Sussex will have a very long wait, as the next one won’t happen until September 23, 2090.
