Solar Eclipse 2012

We were dead centre of the path of the lunar eclipse today.  That in itself is remarkable.  What was not so remarkable was the cloud cover that we had this morning.  It spoilt it for us somewhat, particularly as we looked towards Mt. Molloy and saw sunshine!  Anyway, our next door neighbours, their three children and DH and I made our way to the highest point on our farm.  We took bacon, eggs, sausages, bread - all the makings for a bbq breakfast - and cooked it while we waited.  We arrived nice and early at 5.30 am.  It started to rain lightly at 6.00 am and continued through most of the eclipse.  Occasionally the clouds broke and we caught glimpses of the eclipse but when the moon completely blocked the sun at 6.38 am and day turned into night, well,  that was  an experience that we will never forget.  It was so eerie.  These are the photos that I managed to get.
