A Solar Eclipse Above DriveWorks HQ

March 20th, 2015 / Posted by Jessica Taylor

A rare and impressive sight.

The DriveWorks team gathered outside to watch the rare phenomenon in which the sun is completely obscured by the moon.

In some parts of the UK, up to 98% of the sun was covered by the moon.

This is the first big eclipse to happen in the UK since 1996 and isn’t expected to happen again until 2026 so we didn’t want to miss it!

Our product manager, Paul, set up his camera and managed to capture the eclipse brilliantly.

From sunglasses and viewing boxes to welding masks and camera lenses, we all had very different ways of watching it safely…

The BBC have some even more impressive images of the eclipse taken from an aeroplane as it reached totality.
