"It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last." Luke 23:44-46

I took this picture several years ago at a roadside memorial on the Dingle Peninsula - in county Kerry, Ireland. We were driving along the coast and rounded the corner just in time to see the sun eclipsed by Jesus on the cross... It was a breathtaking moment.
