Anyone see it? I had a look to see if anyone had posted and was surprised that I could find nowt? I got this photo at 10.35 this morning through one of me welding shields. It came out quite well seeing that the glass in the shield is not the cleanest :ymblushing: [:'(]

It decided that we had seen enough of the show now and has clouded over. :-o

No such luck here, cloudy with drizzle. It just got a bit dark for a few minutes.

That's good for so far south - the news said only Norway, Shetlands and Faroe Islands got the 100% - and the next UK full one is 2081. I remember the one when I was in Paris - 1998 or 1999 IIRC which was 100%.

We just had very low cloud and drizzle which got darker at the appointed hour but not dramatically so. I can remember being near Saumur for the 1999 eclipse which was much more dramatic but damned cold for the summer!

Watched it happening on UK TV, as there was nothing to see here apart from constant rain, thick cloud, and remnants of yesterday's pollution haze. It definitely got slightly darker outside at about 10am for 10 minutes or so.

This was the best photo I took, between clouds.

I love celestial happenings, they remind me how insignificant the whole thing is ! :D

That is quite dramatic Hippy and much more so than the clear shot I had. So much more depth!!

I like that!!
