Total Solar Bust

July 23rd, 2009 § 2 comments

Others saw it (including passengers on the longer Costa cruise we opted to not take)…but our eclipse was clouded out. Woke up to lightening and rain in the morning and no matter how hard the captain tried to move out of the heavy cloud cover, the eclipse was buried under a blanket. Such a bummer! It did get super dark, which was quite ominous especially while at sea, but we didn’t see the blacked out Sun–-the entire reason for our journey to Asia. We got a glimpse of the partial eclipse in the hour before totality, but only for a fleeting moment under several layers of gray clouds.

Quite a bummer! I am so jealous of everyone else who got to see this eclipse, the longest for the entire century.
