Bayern Munich enjoy staring at the sun

A solar eclipse in in progress today so Bayern Munich took some time out from training to give it a look

Unless you've been living in a cave for the past few days, you'll be aware that there was a solar eclipse in Europe today. In case you need a quick science refresher this is when the transit of the moon puts it in between the Earth and Sun obscuring light from yonder yellow orb. Bayern Munich took time out form their practice today to observe the event. However, due to the nature of the event only residents in the Faroe Islands were able to view the event with the native eye meaning Bayern Munich had to bring out the "special" glasses.

Behold Sebastian Rode in all his 1950's B-grade science fiction splendor!

Witness Xabi Alonso being a bully and not letting Juan Bernat have a turn while Pepe Reina laughs at him!

Jerome Boateng can actually rock these shades and I fully expect them to be a huge part of his outfit at the next R&B concert he shows up at.

In this case the sun is actually #PartofGoetze

Here's how the #FCBayern players enjoyed the solar eclipse. #MiaSunMia ;-)

Despite the jokes, this is really cool experience and it looks like the team had a ton of fun. I am not jealous
