PHOTOGRAPHER Sarah Peters was well prepared when the clouds suddenly shifted to allow her a glimpse of the solar eclipse this morning - and here is the result.

“It was a lucky break in the clouds!” said Sarah, who caught the eclipse at Douglas.

Her photo shows all but a tiny bright slice of the sun hidden behind the moon.

Her other photographs show the strange darkness which accompanied the rare spectacle.

Well done, Sarah, for being in the right place at the right time, and well organised!
