Eclipse
We are having one today. The zone of totality is quite a long way north of here.

It began 20 minutes ago and paradoxically it has been getting brighter as the cloud cover breaks up a bit. It's maybe 85% cloud cover now...

Can't actually see the sun though Sad

RE: Eclipse
Noticeably darker now. Now where did I put my welding mask?

Since the sun appears to have nipped out from behind a cloud.

Brightening up now. Here's the best pic I managed to get. We didn't get to totality here though Shetland probably did.

RE: Eclipse
It was a total blackout down here...

Maybe because I was asleep at the time Tongue
