E is for Eclipse Watchers
Do you remember where you were on August 11th 1999?
This was the day when a total eclipse of the sun was visible in the UK. I was at a meeting in offices on Oldham Street, Hyde. A few minutes before the event we took a break and went out into the street to witness the event.
It was quite cloudy so we didn't get a really clear view and you had to have a pair of special eclipse-viewing spectacles to avoid damaging your eyes.
I just pointed my camera in the right direction and hoped for the best.
This is the best I managed.
