The solar eclipse today was obscured for many of us by the cloud, but this rather fantastic timelapse video shows it in all its glory.

The video was shot on Curracloe Beach in Wexford, and was cut together by our very own regular shooter Conor Steenson, pulling together some stunning shots of the eclipse itself as well as timelapses from the beach, all set to the pounding Hans Zimmer soundtrack from Interstellar.

The clouds did part eventually so that the view isn't too obscured, but sure it wouldn't be Ireland without the weather doing its best to spoil the party, would it?
