On Friday morning people across the country - and overseas - gathered together to enjoy the solar eclipse.

It was the first solar eclipse to be visible in the UK since 1999 and many people were excited to have a front-row seat for the phenomenon.

But don't fret, there'll be another chance to see a solar eclipse - in 11 years!
