Only people in Denmark's Faroe Islands and Norway's Svalbard Islands the North Atlantic were able to see the total phase of the solar eclipse in person. However, partial phases of the eclipse were potentially visible for millions of stargazers in parts of Europe, Asia and Africa, if weather was favorable. The European Space Agency held several solar eclipse events at its centers across Europe and reported large crowds hoping to catch a glimpse of the celestial event.

Solar Corona from Total Solar Eclipse 2015
On March 20, the Moon's umbral shadow tracked across Longyearbyen, Svalbard. At the total phase, lasting about 2 and half minutes for that location, an otherwise faint solar corona shimmers around the eclipsed disk.

The next solar eclipse on Earth will be a partial solar eclipse on Sept. 13, but it will be over Antarctica, making observation a challenge. In the meantime, the moon will put on its own show on April 3 during the first of two total lunar eclipses of 2015.
