Here are some pictures from the August eclipse 1999 as viewed from the south coast of the Isle of Wight in the car park of the most excellent Buddle Inn pub at Niton.
Although clouds were present during the period of eclipse, the sun/moon was always visible, with the clouds assisting in viewing.

Some beautiful pictures of the sky boiling under the concentrated heat from the sun.
