The Eclipse has been cancelled in Sussex due to low cloud levels. NASA says they will try again tomorrow.

If you hold old hacksaw blades in the air during an eclipse (must be in a public place), they become sharp again  O0

Just in case the eclipse is dangerous, I've closed all the curtains and turned off the lights.
I feel safer now!

Thick cloud.  No discernable darkening.  Did one actually happen ?
1999 was totally awesome. At Racal they let us go outside to watch.

Deepest Lincolnshire got a really spectacular one, there was just enough gap in the clouds to see it really well

Well - I went outside to watch it but the b****y moon got in the way! Still, the next one is 2026 so I shall be ready with my pinhole camera just after eight o'clock tonight. Wouldn't want to miss it twice on the same day.

Annoying.  Two hours after the non-eclipse we suddenly have clear blue skies.

I am at Lyme Regis at the moment. It was misty this morning but I got some atmospheric shots.

WE were in Cornwall near Penzance for the total eclipse, heavy cloud cover, it went dark the birds stopped singing, hippies made paganish noises, it got light again but we never saw the sun. This time I was in Criccieth and it was great. When it was over it rained. Ho Hum
