Skies went dark over the Whitby area in the first solar eclipse to be seen here since 1999.

Our freelance photographer Gary Simpson captured this image of the moon passing in front of the sun from around 9.30am this morning.

Reader Cathy French also sent us the spectacular image, as seen through a telescope.
