New link that seems to be working, also claims to be live : http://new.livestream.com/slooh/events/3807156

This one may be in Svalbard instead of Faroe.
PS - Hit the mute button, because the commentators are rather annoying.

Oh well, not exactly like the Isle of Lewis, maybe next time in 2026.

Re: Solar eclipse

I learned something today. You can't view partial solar eclipses via the selfie-mode camera on your phone.


I did get some mini-images through reflections in a dirty window, though.

Do you guys see any bird? They went crazy and dissapeard. Saw a black cat though... end of the world confirmed!
No idea what kind of birds you have over there. Ours are minding their regular business, but the alpine choughs were going crazy about an hour before the eclipse even started. I think it was the garbage truck that upset them.

Hopefully the polar bears will clean up the mess that will shut them up. Tourists have cleared the supermarket of milk in Longyearbyen, you can't just drive to the next store up there...

Just caught a glimpse - quite a cool sight, but wondering if there is a bit of irony in today's Desert Island Discs selelection of Robin Millar (music producer who went blind "in a day")?

Re: Solar eclipse

The images from Svalbard right now are really cool (when the website isn't crashing).

Re: Solar eclipse

It was a rather disappointing experience:
- it did not get dark, just colder
- the sun eclipse looked like a moon that you can see every month (of course not during the day)
- no mass panic, explosions or anything else that can make it spectacular
- seeing lots of colleagues outside, having a chat, look at the sun and go back in. Like a mega smoking break (making you realize how sad the life of smokers really is).

More than rather "just over the moon..to witness this total spot of totality"???

Re: Solar eclipse

I thought it was cool. Although nothing like the amazing transition in a total eclipse where everything goes silent and time seems to freeze during totality, the light at 10:34 did have certain strangeness about it.

We have big SE-facing windows in the office so could pretty much watch it from our desks. Nobody actually would have watched it since there wasn't a pair of safety glasses in sight, but I thoughtfully bought in a few pieces of fully-exposed HP5. (Note: this only works with old-fashioned black-and-white film which contains silver; colour and chromogenic black-and-white films are not safe for sun viewing).

Re: Solar eclipse

Forgot all about it. I wondered why it was a bit dark outside earlier in the day.
