Eclipses have had various meanings throughout history, some good omens, some bad. And we still find them captivating today, even if they are hidden behind clouds.


If you weren’t lucky enough to see today’s solar eclipse, here is a clip from BBC2’s Wonder of the Solar System, showing the solar eclipse in Varanasi, India that took place in 2010.
