Having forgone witnessing the “Northern Lights’, spectacularly recorded by photographers on the island, we thought the only way we were going to see the Eclipse was by watching the television.
The sky darkened, the temperature dropped and the sky was covered by cloud. Then at just the right time, and at the important area of the sky, there was a brief thinning and parting of the cloud enabling the eclipse to be witnessed.
The television pictures from the plane flying above the clouds over the Faroe Islands were a great technological achievement and a sight to behold, but to see the event for ourselves was memorable.
