It wasn't visible here in the Netherlands ofcourse. There was something about it on the news, in a city in China where it was heavily clouded and raining, so people didn't see it, but ofcourse it went dark for a few minutes.
I did see the solar eclipse of August 11, 1999. We especially went to northern France to see it. It was spectacular. When I get a chance to see one again sometime, I might travel there to see it. There's going to be one on July 11, 2010 but it's going to be in a remote place, Easter Island. That's too far away for me...
Have any of our Indian ranchers seen yesterday's solar eclipse?
Not a chance. It was raining
However, there was a special flight was scheduled, so the lucky few could watch the eclipse from the sky! I saw the photos in my newspaper. Trying to find if they are online.
