...but no eclipse..... I've been watching BBC TV's Stargazing Live programmes this week. So yes I knew all about today's eclipse of the sun by the moon AND it was at a reasonable time (around 9am), but I didn't get myself set up to watch/film it. So you will have to look here for photos (or on the BBC website above).
There was, however, a beautiful sunrise and cloud effect (see above), followed by a lovely sunset (see below). At this time of year I can take the sunrise AND sunset out of the same window. Today sunrise was at 0904 in Orkney, and sunset was at 1526. But s-l-o-w-l-y the days will lengthen now. Yippee!!
