The US space agency, Nasa, said the
greatest total eclipse occurred over the Atlantic Ocean.

One of the best views was in northern Kenya, where tour companies organised trips to view a total blackout.

Local myths there attribute the event to the Moon eating the Sun.

This solar eclipse was a rare occurrence in that it was “hybrid” – switching between an annular and total eclipse.

In a total eclipse, the Moon completely covers the sun, while an annular
eclipse occurs when the Moon is at its farthest from the Earth and does
not block out the Sun completely, leaving a halo of sunlight still
visible around the Moon.
