I have a couple of hours to spare while my lively 4 year old Granddaughter is at preschool. So I thought I would upload the photo’s I took of the Eclipse we had here in the UK last Friday.
First the sky was bright and blue, and we thought we were in for clear skies
If you look at the top of the above image you can see the wisps of cloud rolling in.. The sky was very strange, I think as the cooler air started pulling in the blanket of cloud.
You can see already how its getting darker
Looking through our pin prick pieces of card we could easily see the eclipse by this time the Moon was around 2 thirds of the way across the Sun
But my digital camera was not showing what we could see.
I heard my neighbours out on the front of our houses.. they were observing the eclipse by not looking directly up into the sky. But by looking at the reflection through their windows..
I went back around the back and looked into my kitchen window from the outside.. Sure enough I could see the Eclipse perfectly..
These next few photo’s are what I saw.. I took these pictures of the window.. Now you may see on some there appears 3 eclipses this is due to the glass reflection and the angle I took the photo’s
When this stage of the Eclipse took place, the temperature dropped it was cold, and the birds who had been singing up until this point in the garden shrubs all stopped singing.. The wind also got up slightly adding to the eeriness of this wonderful experience..
I then got out my Drum.. and did some drumming, and gave thanks to Mother Earth in a small ceremony to celebrate The Spring Equinox and the Renewal of Life
I hope you enjoyed this little Interlude..
I will be back in a few days to catch up with all of your own recent posts.. In the mean time have a glorious week.
And hope to be back really soon..
