Solar Eclipse 11th August 1999 Report: Colm Jackson (Penzance, Cornwall)
Even though we didn’t see the sun, I don’t think I would swap this eclipse for the real shebang. I will hopefully get to see the full blown thing someday in another part of the world. It was a very surreal experience. You could almost touch the cloud. I felt we where at the beginning of a wave that was travelling from Cornwall to the far side of India. A truly unforgettable experience.
