It's FOGGY here.
With one hand he giveth, with the other he taketh away.
Loads of us travelled down to Bournemouth to see it. Hundreds of people on the beach. Oh wait, it's hella cloudy. We all just felt it get a bit dark, and then light again. Such a let down.
can I just watch it through the thick, grey cloud that totally obscures the sun from view?
This would never have happened had Scotland voted yes.
All the clouds the.
Please don't look at the Sun today. It's still dangerous even if 10% is visible. The same goes for the Mail and the Express.
I am totally gutted to be honest, I am what people have called a 'Moon Child' in the past so this was meant to be my special day (had a few wee treats planned for myself etc but now just want to curl up into a ball and cry. Was up all night last night in the tent vibrating so much with anticipation and joy but now I am just shaking and tutting so loud I might faint.
(Doesn't matter anyway, just the clouds of Gomorrah)
Is now doing this odd bobbing thing and spinning around, he hasn't done that before and looks half possessed, this eclipse is just not worth it. He better make a full recovery
we might still be able to catch the highlights package.
cloud cover meaning you can look at it directly with your eyes
Through the cloud. Except looked a little too long and now I can see the eclipse even when I close my eyes.
But *today* when you can't see the sun because of clouds, it's an "eclipse".
Where are Philomena and Barry when you need them?
So I can go to the park
I had two cups of tea
the dreamworks logo crescent but without the person fishing
Really fancy a beer
could just be cloud though
out taking selfies with the eclipse behind them here
Just looks like it's on the verge of pissing down here.
I'm not cutting a hole out a piece of paper for this. load of shite
Just enough cloud cover to be able to see it properly. Got lots of great photos. Turns out you can watch it safely through an iPhone camera.
really bright light shining through clouds (front of the house)
load of shit, isn't it meths
Delighted! Total fluke.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate
*streaming from my eyeballs because I took a sneaky glance directly at it.
It's about the President of the United States crashing an experimental spacecraft into Hitler's brain, all while wearing a fedora and S&M bondage whip.
now my eyes hurt.
Thanks a lot, science.
Would hate to be let down twice in one day.
it gets really dark at night, every night - like pitch black.
didn't even get dim this morning.
I might write a letter of complaint to the sun newspaper
"Where you all going? Mass escape?". Someone mentioned we were all going to watch the eclipse and he looked, like annoyed or something that it was happening. Ha.
to watch it get darker like a bunch of fucking gentiles
which is short for sonnenfinsternis. Cute, right?
Negative baseload prices. Impressive even for Germany.
300,000 special sunglasses were sold.
It even got its own website: www.zonsverduistering.nl
What the fuck is the point of seeing a bit of light on a piece of paper with a bit cut out of it. I can do that myself with a torch and a jaffa cake. There was a bit of cloud cover here, enough to look at the sun for a second in the shape of a crescent. But that's not very interesting either. You'd think there'd be a more profound effect on how light it is. Wish I was still asleep fuck off.
not really being sure where to look for a bit
the big orange lights on the massive Tesco distribution center over the road went on for 17 minutes. i was like, WOAH! it must be slightly darker than normal at this time of the day.
and stood there with a load of other people watching it on their sky view apps
I thought the ducks in the river looked a bit spooked and the dogs started acting up! (not really)
I think the temperature dropped
I feel elated and my eyes are pulsating with joy!!!! I feel like that guy from guiness book of records who can puff his eyes out I am crying that much. So happy I got to see it, buzzing! Going to keep my appointment at the beauty shop now and treat myself for once, god knows I deserve it after what I have been through :(
Luckily I was still in my PJs which is a onesie so no damage done really
Still so happy
fuck the haters
thought they were being mental checking x-rays. I jokingly said to one, that isn't my leg is it and then reliased they were testing them for eclipse watching.
looked out the window, a bit dark for 9.45am
back in bed now
obviously, the worshipful celestial carousel requires blood sacrifice and i will shortly be murdering the rest of this rubicon mango
I wanted to rush home to roof/ observation deck/ tent, but I got stuck on a call :(
Looked at the sun a bit too hard at 8.35 though and my eyes are seeing lots of coloured dots, bit scared.
and said "what's everuone looking at?" And I said the eclipse and he said "oh yeah thought it was a bit dark. Don't know dick, me"
thats for sure
Great bunch o solar/lunar path interface lads.
they were sharing round some great stuff for watching the eclipse :)
Puff puff pass
what I don't understand is in London we only had 15% sun so i would have expected it to look more like dusk, it was grey but still bright, 15% sun gives off a shitload of light
a gap in the clouds. It was pretty intense.
preferably this afternoon.
Would've assumed it was just dark because of how overcast it was if I hadn't been told, saw about 2 seconds of partially eclipsed sun 2/10
Really looks lovely out there
See you in 11 years!
Children could not have given any less of a shit :(
It was a break from the sats factory ffs.
