Quick! Americans are looking at the sky - move all of their furniture slightly

My recollection of the 1999 eclipse here in the UK is that it was basically the most British event ever

months of fuss

lectures at school on health and safety

come the day, troop outside with the family

wait for someone else to acknowledge "well we won't see much in this shite weather"

trudge back inside in silent disappointment

@nico Mm, you wouldn't have been able to see the full eclipse up there, would you? I had to go down to France in order to be able to witness a full eclipse.

@trinsec I lived in Cornwall, it would have been total where we were

@nico Ah cool. But yeah, that's what you get for being in Britain. :D We had a good view in Amiens, France.
