Partial Solar Eclipse today!
Astronomical events always create awe in anyone who watches them yet I find that the British weather always conspires against actually viewing them in person. Be it an eclipse or a meteor shower, there will always be a large cloud in the way even when the hours leading up to the event have been clear and balmy. At least these days there is the all encompassing power of the internet so that you can watch the thing itself!
If the page provided by NASA will load, that is!
