Complete cloud here in King's Lynn. I was working with Melanie this morning and we were unable to leave the ward. We did peep out of a window at 9.32am and could only see dark cloudy skies. We carried on working because we had to. If I had a choice, I would have left the building and gone outside to wait and watch. We heard a bit later that people had seen the Solar Eclipse just after that time and up to 9.50am. Some staff had seen it walking along corridors and some had gone outside to look, lucky them! Felt very fed-up, that I had not been able to witness such a rare event. Also made it worse to see spectacular photographs taken, by lots of people I know on facebook. I would have only been able to take pictures on the iphone anyway, as still waiting for my cameras to be checked and serviced from the smoke damage saga. Oh well, got to wait until 2026 for the next partial eclipse in the UK, when I will be 61 years old!
The day developed into blinding sunshine at around 10.30am – so blinding, you could hardly look out of the window as I walked to my teabreak. It remained sunny with blue skies throughout the day.
Anyway, here are links to the event locally and worldwide!
