The Eclipse 2015: Did you see it or was your view clouded?

I left my house this morning at a somewhat earlier time. Advised by a particular news website (not mentioning names) that when the eclipse happens there will be traffic pandemonium. Half 9 UK time is classed as sill the morning rush hour (yes people get up that late) and that was when this event had been predicted to happen.

Upon walking out into the fresh morning air I couldn’t help but look up to the grey murky low cloud base that covered everything above my chimney line.

Great start  (I did laugh initially like Muttley or even an Hyena)

I expected nothing less than the whole of Britain to be cloudy. In all honesty it’s the only weather we know can cope through without something going wrong. So off I went along my normal drive to work. That being the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory science research facility in Harwell Oxfordshire.

Still the clouds remained and the eclipse time loomed. Looking out of my minuscule 2nd floor workshop window, I could see people starting to gather. Again I looked up at the apparent clouds and that was when a speck of blue shone through.

The damn clouds were clearing. I trudged up the large mound towards the back of site with my boss. Taking out my piece of sh** phone I looked at the clock (my second best app) and then I looked up. There it was the crescent sun. A beaming smile in the sky. Just in time the clouds parted, I did expect the Simpsons theme to kick in at any moment. Ladies and Gentlemen, I saw it. Many others didnt, and the photographic evidence is here.

A decent photo imo! Happy eclipse day! Enjoy my ‘gallery’ below and thanks for actually reading this!

Wait for it...

Wait for it…
