Happiness, Horses and Eclipse

20 Mar

What a magical start to the International Day of Happiness!

We and our neighbours went out to watch the partial eclipse of the sun and it was just amazing. The horses were intrigued by what was going on and we felt so lucky that the clouds and the haze had cleared and gave us such an experience. B&S had x-ray film and we had a pin-hole piece of card, a colander and a sheet of white paper as advised last night by the lovely Professor Brian Cox and Dara O’Briain on Stargazing Live last night. Buzz Aldrin was with them and was a delight to listen to. Alex Autin, this post is for you. I wonder if you will be able to find the programme on BBC2.
Thanks to Sue for some of the photos. Click on any photo for detail and the caption.

    It was so cloudy here in London, we couldn’t see anything. Shame! I watched on Live BBC instead!

      Thank you. It was a wonderful experience and one I am unlikely to see again. 🙂

    What great pictures. So glad you had such a great view of something so special. Sadly our cloud didn’t lift until late morning, rather disappointing for the children. I was out at the local market and the light just changed a little. It also got quite chilly, the temperature dropped by two degrees. Have a great weekend. Xx

      Thank you. Yes, we were very lucky. I’m sorry the children were disappointed and hope they did see the tv pictures at least. T the temp dropped here too and the birds were very noisy just before and again afterwards. 🙂

    We had grey skies and rain, it got very dark, so I stayed indoors and let the eclipse happen over my head!
