Kenslow Knoll, solar eclipse, 20 March 2015
It's 9.38 am, and the eclipse is being obscured by clouds. You have to examine this photo very carefully.I assure you there is a faint crescent in the top right corner. I don't think I'll be around to see the next one, but am keeping my fingers crossed, partially if not totally.
