Hi there, just wondering how many of you have been in the path of totality during a total solar eclipse.

I did, went to Ceduna last year, which is in my neck of the woods, around 1000km away.

I have got to say if you get the chance to go and see one, do it, it will blow your mind away. I had all these expectations of what it would look like and it was so different that from that image, that I didn't talk for over three hours.

The little shot under my name is from that eclipse, and even that does not show it fully in all its glory.

Now I have to wait until 2006 in Lybia (Africa) as the one this year at Antarctica is booked out on the plane.

Anyway tell me what you think and I will leave you a shot I took.
