About this image

Thick Low cloud  preceded  start of Eclipse.  Luckily sky  cleared  only  Seconds  before  First Contact.  Sky conditions remained good  for the  first 20 minutes of the Eclipse. Then  Cloud  sheets  rolled up from the SSW giving only momentary breaks. The image  was taken at the  nearest point  of the Maximum  of the eclipse  given the  Sky conditions.  To all intents  I was completely clouded out  by 10.20UT   An hour after the  end of the event  the Sky cleared  !!!  Very happy with  what was  achieved  coming on the back of a brilliant  display of NLC  the previous evening
