Solar Eclipse 11th August 1999 Report: David Owen (Penzance, Cornwall)
Despite not seeing the solar eclipse due to cloud, I was impressed by the sudden darkness for just 2 minutes. It was worth travelling 12 hours there and 12 hours for the return journey to see the eclipse even though it was cloudy, I hope the next one will be better.
