An eclipse, partial or otherwise, is a pretty amazing event but the difference between 95% and 100% coverage has to be experienced to be believed. We ‘only’ had a partial eclipse in southern England last Friday and heavy cloud didn’t bode well. As it turned out, I think the cloud added to the occasion – although I wouldn’t have been quite so happy had it been a total eclipse!
This was taken before the maximum coverage but, for me, best conveyed the drama of the moment.
