It was a wonderful moment to be able to see the eclipse. The whether was so fine that we could see the process of the eclipse. It was a first time I witnessed this eclipse since I was born and I think that you were right all that you have explained to me. I accompany a group of astronomers from University of Polytehnic Madrid. They were satisfied because what they all expected come true. I hope you could enjoy also and hope you will see other eclipse next year.
Wish you all the best,
We had clear and then some light scattered clouds, but the clouds didn't matter a bit for totality - could see it all perfectly - corona, those pink prominences (wow!!), etc. Couldn't see any of the planets though. Tim got a good pic of the diamond ring.
And you??? Do tell ...
But we really missed being with you!! For the US I hope we can coordinate! Cheers! Bon>
We should have been with you ...
Totality was the same, but your setting was So Much better! Here by the city we didn't get the dark, the degree of temperature change, or the sunset horizon. All of which - as I realized immediately after and your pics vastly reinforce - are So important to the full impact of the event. Which, of course, you and Talaat have always ensured for us before. Thank You! Haha! Live and learn.
Tim and I both send big hugs right back, and will be thinking of you on those flights ...
