A local woman has managed to capture a striking photograph of the partial solar eclipse in Enniskillen, this morning (June 10), despite poor visibility across many parts of Fermanagh.

Partial solar eclipse taken by Kathleen Brogan-McCauley at SWC Enniskillen.

Due to heavy cloud cover, many Fermanagh residents missed the partial solar eclipse, where nearly a third of the Sun was blocked out by the Moon.

However, Kathleen Brogan-McCauley was in the right place at the right time to capture the spectacle on camera.

An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line with the Earth, but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun.

This causes the Sun to appear as a very bright ring, or annulus, in a phenomenon dubbed as the “ring of fire”.

However, in the UK and Ireland lucky observers like Kathleen were able to see a crescent Sun instead of a ring.

Sharing her photographs with The Impartial Reporter, which showed a dramatic crescent shaped Sun against a moody backdrop of cloud, Kathleen said: "These were taken from the beauty salon in South West College [in Enniskillen]. Outstanding footage from this iconic building [in] its final weeks of use."

Kathleen also managed to take a video of the partial solar eclipse just before clouds drifted in, blocking her view.
