Thanks to the clear weather, people across Germany got a glimpse of the partial solar eclipse.

In Berlin, we were able to gapture a pinhole view of the eclipse through our makeshift viewer - here's a photo from around the peak of the moon's passage across the sun:

One reader from Munich got in touch to show us how they were viewing the astronomical event:

Meanwhile there were images from around Germany of people taking advantage of the sunny day to view the eclipse.

Dutch royal couple Willem-Alexander and Maxima took a moment out of their trip to Hamburg to watch it:

In Munich, crowds of children viewed the eclipse using their special glasses:

While on Berlin's Teufelsberg, there was some serious photography underway:

Some people shared images of their creative viewing setups:

 

And of course, some pranksters couldn't help but make a joke out of the whole thing:

See how the eclipse looked to our colleagues around Europe - people were following it in Sweden and in France, while in Norway there was a total eclipse on the island of Svalbard.
