Lastest Post - The Eclipse
March 20, 2015

A kind of hush fell over the Moor on Friday morning as villagers along with millions of people in the UK and northern Europe glimpsed the best solar eclipse in years as a great swathe of the Earth’s surface was plunged into darkness as the Moon came between us and the Sun.

Birds stopped singing as people squinted through holes in envelopes, colanders and special glasses as the misty translucence of morning mist was gradually pierced by the sun’s diluting rays.

Walkers stopped walking, drivers stopped driving and villagers took up positions on local promontories to witness one of Nature’s devine miracles.

It was 09.25 and darkness slowly fell as the Moon crept up on its big brother and then by 10.00 all was clear, bright and people went about their business again buoyed by a sight that we shall not now see until 2026 in the UK.

Friday was a day good to be aliveā€¦
