Why don't I see any threads about the upcoming eclipses?  Huh,2845.0.html

Welcome back Roman - I was beginning to think that you'd deserted us!  Smiley

I must admit that my enthusiasm for this eclipse has been somewhat dampened as totality occurs around the time that the Moon sets (as seen from the UK). If only it had been a repeat performance of the superb eclipse we had in early 2007. The timing and altitude of the Moon was far more favourable to those of us in 'ole Blighty and as most of us had clear skies for the occasion, my main astro forum at the time was buzzing with reports from all parts of the UK - including a guy who lived way up in Shetland.

Talk about an electric atmosphere!!

There's a thick blanket of cloud outside as I type this so looks as though this eclipse will be a 'dead duck' for me, too!  Sad
