Eclipse 99


Karlsruhe, Germany, 11th August 1999. Cloud thin or absent throughout eclipse, thick before and after !

A very low quality video of part of the eclipse can be downloaded HERE (1999 was a long time ago now and this was an analogue video)

Lindsey, Gareth and Paul

At about 11.15 we were worried. Contact should have been taking place any minute.

The locals, who very kindly lent us their rooftop.

In memoriam Jean Gab. and André.

A quick snap of Gareth's video. He and I both recorded totality from beginning to end.

VIELEN, VIELEN DANK TO JOACHIM AND HIS PARENTS FOR INVITING US TO KARLSRUHE, PUTTING US UP AND ENABLING US TO WITNESS THIS EVENT. PLEASE DRINK THE BEER KRUG I ACCIDENTALLY LEFT WITH YOU !
