Image taken when Manchester Astronomical Society went to northern France to observe the eclipse. Most of the time the sky was cloudy, but at a crucial moment a hole in the clouds about two degrees across allowed us to secure a few seconds of magnificent totality. Had we been a few hundred yards on either side of our location we would probably have missed it.
