Laurence Mitchell

I witnessed this event this morning from my home in Norwich, UK. Totality was at 7.40am GMT. The strange thing was seeing the moon slowly disappear as a narrowing crescent but then not seeing it reappear again as by now it had gone below the horizon and it was daylight. Winter solstice too - a 400-year phenomenon apparently.


Congratulations on getting to see the eclipse, Laurence! Didn't work out quite so well for us in the southeast U.S. Clouds at 3:00 a.m., a cold rain at dawn.

Sounds like from your perspective it looked like the moon just decided to take the rest of the night off a little early.
