Solar Eclipse

The weather in Cumbria certainly seemed to co-operate this time to allow observing of the eclipse. Unfortunately I was working. I've not heard any reports from CAS members (perhaps you could post a comment here is you saw it). I know the Eddington Astronomical Society had a very successful eclipse watch in Kendal. See Cumbrian Sky for a full report from Stuart.

There are lots of excellent photos on the SpaceWeather.com website here. Meanwhile the eclipse was photographed from space by the crew of the International Space Station . . .

Hopefully the weather was good where our eclipse chasers were. I looking forward to a full report at our April meeting.
