The point of greatest eclipse occurred above the Norwegian Sea around 5:46 a.m EDT on March 20, 2015, with the greatest period of darkness lasting for about three minutes, BBC reported.
Though the eclipse was not visible for those in the U.S., and clouds obscured the skies for some viewers in the U.K. and Faroe Islands, many professional and amateur photographers were able to capture spectacular views of the new moon blotting out the sun.
The next total solar eclipse that will be visible in parts of the U.S. will occur on Aug. 21, 2017.
