In the south of the UK it is supposed to be visible about now (9pm BST) but there's a ton of cloud cover at the moment. Totality is supposed to be quite long so there's a small chance I'll get a break later.

Anyone else looking?

I saw it just before sunrise this morning in NZ (further reddened by Chilean volcanic ash), but it dipped behind a mountain before I could get my camera on it. Bah.

Didn't catch even a whiff of it. So nothing unusual there.

I watched a part of it, no clouds where in the way.
Did not really consider bringing out the camera for stills because I haven't got a lens for the purpose except for my telescope.
Now I kinda regret it, but I was kinda busy talking about work stuff anyways.

Rain.

It wouldn't matter anyways, apparently the eclipse isn't even making a cameo in North America. It's too bad that I'll have to wait until sometimes next year (providing that it's not rained out, which most likely, it will be).
