#FishyFriday and it's the #eclipse coming from Cornwall.


The scene is set for a stunning Cornsih #eclipse in Newlyn...


as members of the local astronomy society...


and a film crew...


from BBC Spotlight...


and  reporter John Maguire...


presented from the fishermen's memorial...


as the low cloud began to thin...


the harbour brightened...


and the fish were sold as normal...


and to compliment the rays outside there were plenty of rays inside from the St Georges...


some huge ling...


another beast from the deep...


an hour away from the start of the #eclipse...


the gulls are making their way to the harbour...


to watch the solar eclipse...


over the boats...


and the harbour...


waiting for the cloud to clear...


the news team make another broadcast...


while the astronomers can only watch...


and wait.
