Bury St Edmunds: Solar eclipse captured on camera
KEEN photographers have today captured the moment when clouds over a west Suffolk town parted to reveal a partial solar eclipse.
Stephen Davies took his photographs from his back garden in Bury St Edmunds using a new Panasonic camera given to him as a Christmas present.
He told how he started pressing the shutter as soon as the dense cloud cover revealed the eclipse at about 9.12am yesterday.
Photographer Robert Robertson captured the same moment in Bury’s Abbey Gardens.
Mr Robertson, who had been out and about at night trying to capture images of meterorites, said: “Nothing seemed to be happening. It was thick cloud. And then it thinned out and we saw the eclipse.”
