Hundreds of people turned out at the Western Lawns alongside the Eastbourne Astronomical Society in the hope of getting a glimpse of the partial eclipse on Friday.

This was in spite of the skies over Eastbourne being too cloudy to view the event properly – if at all.

But Peter Gill, meetings secretary, said there was a 
real interest in astronomy in the town.

The turnout at the Western Lawns certainly proved that on the official first day of spring (vernal equinox).
