At 9 o'clock this morning I watched the eclipse of the sun, simply and easily from the front windows of my own home. It was amazing and wonderful to see the moon gradually cover the sun until only a narrow sliver was left .
I remember the last eclipse in 1999 and how I went into the country with some of the family and walked to the farthest edge of a big field to watch from there. We were impressed that day but no more so than I was today.
Unfortunately my little camera refused to catch that last sliver of sun but it did capture the general effect of the sky and the clouds.
Untimely darkness
