Ashford has missed out on seeing the eclipse because there was a thick cloud cover.
If the sky had been clear, viewers in the borough would have seen the moon cover around 85% of the sun.
But that’s nothing compared to the blanket of cloud that managed to cover 100% of the sky.
Timeline of phenomenon from North Street, in the town centre.
It was the first big partial eclipse to happen in the UK since 1999 and the next one won’t happen until 2026.
Starting around 8.24am, the phenomenon lasted more than two hours.
There was a change in atmosphere and the weather went very chilly.
