Yes there is.
I missed the '99 one as I was in an aeroplane
Did it happen in Greece? This seems to make no sense to me now.
where we were walking back through the trees around Holborn and the gaps between each leaf acted as a pinhole camera so you could just see hundreds of little partial eclipses projected onto the pavement.
my favourite bit was our one year old puppy in the garden getting very nervous about whole thing.
I am disappointed that I'm never likely to see a total eclipse.
i found this one website that was selling packs of 4 for 10 notes. i've only got one set of eyes though, and no friends.
It might not get dim enough to risk eye damage?
(Oi oi! Etc.)
talked about this with my mam last week and we both remembered that on the day we went to somerfields with my cousin then sat in the living room watching the telly coverage with the curtain nets drawn
such a vivid memory
Worked really well.
Would recommend this for those scared about using the (unproven) method the so called newspapers say to do with the box viewer etc.
pretty good, in terms of it going very dark very quickly, and then becoming light again, similarly quickly. So many people took pictures of it with their flash on. It was like when The Rock does the People's Elbow.
