Today I was lucky enough to see my second solar eclipse in person. This was was a partial eclipse, I last saw the total eclipse in 1999.
When I woke up and up until about ten minutes before the maximum eclipse was going to be visible, the sky was cloudy. But with a few minutes to go the cloud's parted and we got to view the eclipse.
It will be at least ten more years until we see such a good eclipse in British skies. I feel very lucky to have seen one again.
It was like a smile in the sky!
