Although the weather wasn’t good for astronomy last week a few people did manage to get some photographs of the partial solar eclipse on Friday.

Yvonne Morrison, a mature student from Maybole studying photography at Glasgow City College, managed to capture the eclipse from her home.

Yvonne said: “I was using My Nikon D3100 with a Nikon 55-300 lens exposure 1/100 F5.6. Although it was a very muggy morning here in Maybole I managed to capture a little part of the eclipse.”

The eclipse could also be seen through the gaps in the clouds in Girvan.
