It is going to be even better from the far north of Scotland where I live

A pity it is not quite total, just that thin slither is more than enough to prevent the corona being seen.

It is still the best eclipse I can see without having to travel.

I just hope the weather is going to be better than it was for the 2003 annular eclipse [supposedly] visible from here. All we saw was extremely thick fog




BTW. One I took from Zambia in 2001

Nice, I'll see it from Lyon

2003 ? Are you sure it was not in August 1999 ?

A different eclipse. The 1999 one was only total from the very southwest tip of England, we went to Turkey for that one and got a much better view

The 2003 was partial for much of the UK and France but it was annular for the northern parts of Scotland. Or so I am told, the fog that morning was so thick you could not tell where the sun was even meant to be - a glorious day later as luck would have it !

The weather is not looking too good for tomorrow up here, it is cloudy but fingers crossed it may clear before the eclipse.

Cloudy here on and off.

The beginning was clearish, then it totally clouded over and near the maximum coverage it cleared but then became cloudy again.


Oddly, one of the best pics was without the filter but taken through the clouds.

Also, one near the beginning of the eclipse.

Was really clear down here in SE Wales on the edge of the Severn estuary. I didn't have a filter and only my compact camera with me but managed to get an image by not pointing directly at the sun.

Wish I'd realised earlier because almost everything I took before it peaked was just a massive blob of light. Nevermind.

Fortunately, clouds allowed me to take pictures without any filter (but I had to wear sunglasses ).

Nice to see some shots of DU in action in your picture set


I too had DU running in Realtime Update mode during the eclipse.

those of us in the americas had to make due with watching remote video and 'observing' via digital universe, which, by the way, remains far and away my favorite amiga software.

Not true, it was visible from Northants too (at least I'm pretty sure it was - I actually managed to miss totality and not due to the clouds either )

Here's Bedford this morning:

It's nice to see peoples pics with various techniques used to capture them. Particularly like the one taken through a floppy disk

We had a lovely clear sky for the duration of the eclipse down here in the far southwest of Cornwall. I sat outside and enjoyed the event, I have a rather red and hot mush now though, he he

I expect Stargazing-Live will have some good info and good footage of the eclipse later this evening.

Here in Copenhagen, there was no chance at all, totally cloudy.

Of course I already knew in advance it would be, so I time-lapsed the event in DU already last night and worked calmly at my desk at work during the actual thing this morning

Best regards,

Niels

As I thought, only parts of Cornwall and Devon were within the totality path - see the map linked below for details.

Torquay would have been the farthest east in the UK that totality would just be seen.

Pretty close but not quite, in fact rather similar to this one.
