Dear Philip

After much media hype the eclipse was a bit of a damp squib - with 
cloud cover over much of southern England.  Those who went to 
Cornwall (the zone of totality) had to watch it on TV.  However it 
went quite dark there.  One problem is that in mid-August you don't 
get birds singing anyway.

I watched the eclipse from Central London where the busy streets 
stopped and everyone watched.  Every office block was covered in 
people!  They even put out a warning to stock-brokers that The City 
financial institutions would stop working!
