Stargazers across the UK were able to see the solar phenomenon today as the sun appears to have been bitten.
The impressive sight is the result of a partial solar eclipse, which occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth.
Observers around the world went outside to watch the moment it happened, and those in western Siberia were expected to have the best views.
People are advised not to look directly at the sun to avoid eye damage.
Dr Robert Massey of the Royal Astronomical Society said the eclipse could cause the moon to block the view of “part or all of the bright solar surface” and the sun would “look like it was bitten”.
Here are some of the best photos of the eclipse as it unfolds:
