Forums Sun Today’s solar eclipse Brum

Gary Poyner

For once the Sun shone on the centre of the known universe – Birmingham!  Clear skies from beginning to end with some high stuff about at times, but didn’t spoil the fun.  Visual for me of course with a 22cm stopped to 10cm and (ancient) solar screen. Then took BAA eclipse viewer to my community library where I give IT classes and showed a lot of people the second half of the eclipse.  I also bought some BAA viewers for my grandchildren, who took them to school and at mid eclipse, all the school (small school ~75 kids) was in the playground passing them around and seeing it in real time.  A bit of a result all round I would say!
