Flashback Friday - Total Eclipse
I am not flashing back too far for this contribution to Flashback Friday.
Cast your minds back to Wednesday August 11th, 1999.
What occurred on this day was a once in a lifetime opportunity for many people to witness the spectacle of a total solar eclipse, visible from the UK.
The next time this is expected to happen is 2090.
I clearly remember the building excitement and the hushed silence as daylight faded to a spookily unnerving twilight.
I didn't even try to capture the celestial spectacle on camera but I did record my children's reactions to it as they gazed into the sky through their 'fun in the sun' eye protector glasses.
