So, did anyone else see it?

We're on the road today, but the traffic on the motorway was pretty awful, so we pulled off at a village between Ghent and Bruges. I hadn't told F what was happening in the sky, but projected an image of the truncated sun onto the skin of my hand using Anne's binoculars. At first he thought my finger must be blocking part of the solar disc, but then he looked more closely and realised what was going on - and was thrilled.

He came with us to see the total eclipse in August 1999, but since he was less than three weeks old at the time doesn't really remember it!
