Eclipse France 1999

    Crossing the Queen Elizabeth bridge on the way to the channel crossing

    "Well thats the car parked"

    Adjusting oneself

    Waiting for the skies to turn dark

    The local church clock indicates 12:20pm , the time of totality

    All of a sudden the skies do indeed turn dark

    And then it's as black as night

    This is dinner time in France

    In the distance the light returns as the edge of the 60 mile wide shadow passes over
