Spring equinox –

Greeted by solar eclipse

And full cloud cover.

For Carpe Diem: Higan (equinox).

Yes, today we had three amazing astronomical phenomena coinciding – the Spring equinox, a near-total eclipse of the sun and a supermoon. And thanks to the British weather, we couldn’t see a thing. Oh well, at least we didn’t go blind and there are only 11 years till the next “deep partial” eclipse.
