Party like its 1999 ...
It looks like we won't be seeing the current eclipse, its too cloudy here in the London area, but it looks great on television from other locations ..... It is currently getting darker though as the moon passes the sun.
At least we got to see the 1999 eclipse perfectly - was that almost 16 years ago?, from the roof of my office in Regent Street, with special glasses of course. It was astonishing looking at these planets and moons aligning, almost like something out of 2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY. One felt at one with the universe and how we are all part of it, even our dear departed.
Here I am at a music festival shortly after in my special edition eclipse tee-shirt, wonder what happened to that? What a day that was ... what I can remember of it!
