PHOTOS: Rare Total Solar Eclipse, Supermoon Delight Stargazers as Spring Commences

In a rare partnership of celestial events, a total eclipse and a new supermoon coincided to welcome the first day of spring.

According to Slooh Astronomer Bob Berman, total eclipses are a rare sight, only occurring once in every 360 years.

"Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, in nature is as powerful and spectacular as the totality of a solar eclipse," he said.

However, the total eclipse was visible for only a small sector of the globe in the northern Atlantic Ocean. Those across Northern Europe claimed some of the best views as skies were dotted with the visible moon and clouds cooperated for photographers and videographers alike.

For those whose viewing conditions were hindered by clouds, catch a replay of Slooh's broadcast of the event from the Faroe Islands, located in the northern Atlantic Ocean.
