We’ve been building up to today’s solar eclipse for… at least three days, planning where to watch it and how to celebrate it (there are some awesome parties happening tonight). And boy-oh-boy it didn’t disappoint.
That beautiful burning crescent over a pitch black sky. Night reclaiming the daytime for itself.
Fights at the Royal Observatory to try and get a better view. Cries of pain across the city as fools looked directly at the sun.

*If you did take a picture of the eclipse looking awesome please show it us on Twitter so we don’t feel so disheartened.
If you liked this you’ll probably like us moaning about the five worst types of Londoner.
Or these 17 shit London flat adverts that made us want to laugh and cry at the same time.
Or that time we ranted on about lies all Londoners tell themselves.
