Weather cooperates for Partial Solar Eclipse

Well the clouds parted long enough for a few dozen passers by to get a good view of the partial solar eclipse from Cockermouth memorial gardens today where I had my trusty solar filtered 80mm wide angle refractor set up. Sorry no pictures of the event from there (I forgot to take the camera) but here is one of the diamond ring taken on the line of totality by the Norwegian airforce from Kvitøya high in the arctic circle.
Of course if anyone did take some shots, don't forget to bring them along to the next meeting (26th August)

Clear skies
