Solar Eclipse 2015 (with pictures)
« on: March 20, 2015, 06:48:21 AM »
Can you see the eclipse from where you are?
We had almost totality here - I'll try to post an image but I'm not very good at it


the sun is just that tiny little sliver in the middle -the clouds came over just after this so we missed the central moment


This is afterwards when the sun started showing again

We had nearly total here - but it was a bit hard to see thanks to the clouds. I did take a photo but it's:
1) On my phone and
2) Really, really crappy!

Definitely saw more this year than I did in 1999!

The sky was too cloudy in my area of London, so I did not see the sun. Also the area is too built up. It did get dark though.

We were overcast so we didn't see anything. It got slightly darker, but that was all.

I was in Newcastle and managed to get a fairly good view - there was 91% and the clouds parted for long enough to get a look. Better than the non-view I had of the total eclipse in Germany in 1999- total eclipse, total cloud cover... just like the weather for BOTH transits of Venus!

My boys both took pinhole cameras to school, which worked well

I'm clear over in Oregon, so I saw nothing, plus it was raining here. 

Here's a place to see some other pictures:
