Eclipse at Chesterton Windmill

Updated: 3:04 pm, May 07, 2015

THE HEAVEN’S above were the focus for many in the district at 9.30am this morning.

A near full solar eclipse plunged the area into darkness and saw the temperature drop for a few minutes as the moon covered the sun.

The weather for experiencing the eclipse in the Midlands was among the best in the UK. We are not expected to see a similar eclipse until 2026.

Our photographer took his place alongside other eclipse viewers at historic Chesterton Windmill while crowds gathered along The Parade in Leamington.
