Eclipse

I have learnt something today.  Don't start decorating when there is a partial solar eclipse.

Sadly, here in the South East we had loads of cloud this morning but even still we did experience the change in light conditions as the moon passed directly between the Earth and the Sun.  We had to resort to the TV for some action.


















The full eclipse photos were taken from a plane above cloud level and all pictures were featured on the BBC Stargazing Live Eclipse Live programme this morning from 9 am.  I'm not sure what happened to the last photo - looks more like a nose for Comic Relief.






The decorating had to pause when the light levels went down, the above photo was taken inside the house, it looks worse than it seemed at the time, but it was definitely darker than usual. 

Typically, this afternoon the sun is out and shining brightly as indeed is our newly painted room.  Order has been resumed.
