Mia: www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-68731785 I'm in 5 minute partial land, but overcast Apr 8, 2024 19:04:12 GMT
Gary S: We had 97.6% coverage in Checotah, OK. It was pretty cool. Literally. The temps dropped about 15 degrees and all the photosensitive lights turned on around town at the peak of the eclipse. Apr 8, 2024 19:12:33 GMT
Steph Walford: I remember the total eclipse in 1999. Made these cardboard things to view it safely Apr 8, 2024 20:20:31 GMT
Mia: went to sw ireland for that - overbloomin'cast Apr 8, 2024 21:16:40 GMT
radellaf: Clear view of 85% and no leaves to dapple the pavement in crescents. Had glasses. Meh. Anyone for Spain 2026? Apr 11, 2024 16:07:30 GMT
distractedmom: , I regretted not driving the three hours to get to totality. I'm sure a trip to Spain would make me feel better. Apr 14, 2024 1:11:44 GMT
allanorn: I'd rather not deal with my regrets, but if I have to I'll go to Barcelona to watch an eclipse to make up for missing out this time. Apr 14, 2024 20:04:40 GMT

Rouge: So I got both. Jun 12, 2024 15:06:30 GMT
