I took this photo at about 9am this morning while walking the dog on Hampstead Heath. The crowds were gathering in the hope that the sun might appear. But it didn’t. Piran and I hung around until 9.30am just in case we had a glimpse, but instead we got very cold.. in fact it was cold for about an hour and I was glad to get home and warm up again.
So I have seen two solar eclipses in my lifetime now…. and have yet to see the sun. 2026 is my next opportunity…..
