The phone app had finally counted down and allowed us toSmile remove our glasses for totality, 2min. 15 seconds.

A few muted cheers, wows and gasps as people started to have a good look at the dazzling white corona around the moon, a sight captured in my memory camera forever. SmileSmile It didn't look like that on Hayle beach, Cornwall back in 1999, i remember vividly a big cheer and camera flashes going off across the water in St Ives but can't remember seeing the sun.

Bleeps started to remind us there was ninety seconds left of totality, time to nip over the fence and get on with Plan A ( see my last pic )

A magical silence ( apart from the phone app bleeps ) was broken by this Top Gun pilot screaming through the skies doing tricks as totality came to an end.

A fantastic experience, met some lovely people, thanks James Saylor for the prints Smile See Ya all in Florida 20 24 SmileSmileSmile
