Worth it for the pun alone. This was the view of the eclipse over Roseberry Topping on Teesside.
I didn't climb up it because I was supposed to be in the Newcastle newsroom on a planning shift and I didn't want to be late. Honest.

"In Holland, we can see all the games in England - everything is on television, so I knew the squad, I knew the players, plus the fact that we have a great stadium and great fans.

Chief Constable Sue Sim says a group of officers have complained about her behaviour after it emerged PCC Vera Baird has appointed a judge to investigate allegations of misconduct.
Ms Sim said: "I will cooperate fully with the investigation and I am keen to do so at the earliest opportunity in the interests of Northumbria Police and the public we serve.
"It would not be appropriate for me to make any further comment at this time."
Malcolm Bannister snapped this photo of the eclipse earlier in Thorpe Thewles near Wynyard on Teesside.
It adds: "The nature of the complaints to be investigated is that the Chief Constable may have fallen short of her duty as a police officer to treat colleagues with respect and courtesy.
"I have appointed Mr Joel Bennathan, QC of Doughty Street Chambers, London, a Recorder of the Crown Court, to carry out that investigation.
"Chief Constable Sim will not be suspended and this is not currently an investigation into gross misconduct."
Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Bird says in a statement: "I am now in a position to respond to recent rumours about the Chief Constable of Northumbria Police.
"Over the past few days, I have sought clarification about the issues raised by some officers. I am now clear that they wish to make complaints against the Chief Constable of Northumbria Police which merit investigation.
"The first step in the statutory process in such a situation is for me to assess the severity of any such complaint and I have done so.
"I have told the Chief Constable that there is a prima facie case to be investigated as to whether she is guilty of misconduct."
The Chief Constable of Northumbria Police, Sue Sim, is to be investigated over allegations of misconduct.
You could never say the life of a BBC reporter wasn't varied.
Out filming the eclipse on Teesside for BBC Look North today I bumped into Simon Andrews and Martin Hardy, about to climb up Roseberry Topping wearing tin hats.
People might think they are eccentric, as Martin admitted, but "you can never be too careful". Apparently aliens are apt to land around the eclipse and the hats protect against mind control. Obviously.
