2015 Solar Eclipse - Spitzbergen / Faroe Islands by Mark Sukhija

On the 20th March, 2015 there was see a total solar eclipse in the Atlantic Ocean, on Faroe Islands, Spitzbergen and the North Pole. Outside of these areas, a partial eclipse was visible - or not as it turned out as many areas were covered in cloud.

With the weather in London not playing ball - I didn't manage to see any of the eclipse at all. As many of the areas were the eclipse (especially the partial eclipse outside the line of totality) were covered in cloud viewing the eclipse, let alone photographing it, was impossible to most.

I'm slowly adding links to places on the interwebs where there has been some decent reporting, pictures, video etc. If you know of a feed or gallery which I haven't included here, please send me an email.
