Hi Karen - thanks for the invitation - very tempting - but have you seen the forecast? Rain alternating with heavy rain! Let's hope they're wrong. Phil

Oh dear, that's typical, best laid plans an' all that. Maybe the chance of a lightening shot? I did buy a new (bargain) waterproof the other day haha

My sister-in-law, who is an astronomer at Cambridge University, says we will get another chance in January. It was just the length of the eclipse which was unusual, not the eclipse itself apparently.
