    We did not have a good view being that there was much cloud cover,but it went fairly dark for awhile up here in Scandinavia,whilst these past 2 nights we have seen the northern lights put on a spectacular show for many Hours and what i have heard on our local radio it was seen as far AS POLAND, How was your's,Regards Alf

    Ours down here in sunny Spain was dreadful thick thunder clouds and it's been pouring for days. It seems that the eclipse lasted all day it's been so dark and gloomy.

    I would think it was pretty good here in Newport - a brilliantly sunny day - however, I was in Asda and missed it! :RollEyes:

    Didn't notice
    It was dark dank morning
    No real change in the available light

    What a shame really
    enjoyed the one
    In 1999 used a welding glass to watch it
    Brilliant sunny day then

    Waste of time in Torquay, just a dull morning, thought I had got the wrong day, took the dog for a walk, it did not get any where near dark.

    Eclipse was a bit of a non event, didn't go anywhere near as dark as I expected

    I am much more interested in your northern light sightings

    How bad are the rods at this time of year, I am looking at driving up to the arctic circle next year, either as soon as the roads are safe to drive on or just before they get too dangerous again, I was thinking April or September, is March a bit too early?

    Brilliant clear sky, fantastic view through double glass welding mask. Didn't go very dark though here in Lincolnshire.

    Palencia, Spain, great, made some viewing specs from muesli box, Aldi type, had a good half hour of varying cover. 1999 was not so good, we were in Torridon, it went dark and cold, but the day was saved by a passing Goldie. How many more can I see before 6 foot of soil blocks my view.?

    Pollution from Europe. It won't happen when UKIP are in charge. Honestly.

    We are at Barnard Castle cc site quite cloudy but managed a few pics, it went really cold and quiet, the birds were quiet, I think they went to bed for a nap. I will try to post some pics when I get home
    Cheers Dave
