[quote]I don't expect many people will see it. Even in Cape Province, SA, the eclipse will be very short and it seems to miss Auckland in NZ (their largest city). [/quote]

HI All,
The next big British Solar Eclipse will be the 20th March 2015.The wide Totality track will cross Spitsbergan and the Faeroe Islands with a partial of between 80-90% covering the British Isles.This eclipse is similar to the one of June 30th 1954 that my dad witnessed while working on farm in Perthshire.He always maintained this was total from Perth,although it wasent the sky did apparantly darken considerably with Totality narrowly missing the Shetlands.Not quite so close this time but eagerly awaited just the same and the biggest Solar event from these islands since May 31st 2003.
Regards Les.
