Solar Eclipse 11th August 1999 Report: Dot Maline (Penzance, Cornwall)
I wouldn’t have missed the eclipse at Penzance for the world even after travelling 12 hours there and back. The atmosphere was electric at totality and with the complete darkness, an unearthly feeling passed over me. It would have been marvellous if the clouds had disappeared, but I am sure that I would not have felt any than I did at Penzance
