The best partial solar eclipse since 1999 has begun across the Anglia region but for many the view is spoilt by cloud.
With the eclipse reaching a peak just after half nine this morning, the cloud is breaking up just in time across parts of Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire with promising signs for Milton Keynes and the far west of Norfolk.
Elsewhere, unfortunately, the overcast skies are expected to stay - at least until after the eclipse.
The cost of renting a house in East Anglia has risen by the highest amount in any region over the last five years.
The average tenant in East Anglia now pays £787 a month compared to £714 a month a year ago. Putting the rent rise at 10.2% year on year - the highest across the UK.
"The rental sector is carrying the weight of the housing crisis. More homes are needed to house an ever-growing population. The supply simply isn't there. The result is that landlords are catering to those who can't afford to buy as well as those who choose renting for the flexibility it offers them - workers moving into new jobs, or people wanting to get a feel for an area before committing to property ownership and setting down roots."
Scientists and stargazers from across the region are preparing for tomorrow's solar eclipse.
It'll be the last time we'll get to witness a major eclipse until 2026.
ITV News Anglia's Malcolm Robertson has been finding out a little more about this natural phenomenon. Watch his report below.
