Was that it?




How was it for you?  These pics were taken from the back door this morning - eclipse?  What eclipse?!!  No need for special glasses here we couldn't see across town it was so misty so no sun in view!  No birds going to roost, no odd silence, no nothing really here!!

  1. It was good here in my part of NI , it got darker, cooler and stiller! Sore eyes now, I know, I know I shouldn't have looked but I did! We had a slight cloud cover which made it visible without the glare.

  2. Very bright sun here, but it did not seem to darken much. Bit of a damp squib!

  3. Loads of people on the Tor, where you got intermittent glimpses as the cloud shifted. We did notice the birds went silent. Bright sunshine now, although the mist hasn't cleared fully.

  4. We were a bit later than you, had darkness around 9.30am. We had intermittent cloud at just the right time and got some great cloudy glimpses which meant that we could look straight at the sun!

  5. Same as Elizabeth, here in North Bucks. Not half as good as 1999.

  7. We were sat in the garden as it got darker and I thought I had plenty of time.... so I went in to make a cup of tea and when I came out with the tray it was suddenly a whole lot brighter..... so we had the same result as you and I missed the best bit!

  8. The sun shone here, and somehow not just the light but the quality of the air changed quite dramatically. It was all rather cosmic and awe inspiring.

  9. Hi Jane, I let Silve know you asked after her, she'll no doubt be in touch.

  11. I thought the exact same thing. Didnt really see much and I walked all the way into town to see it from a better angle!
    Hope you are well.
