    Re: partial eclipse

    All seven total eclipses that I've seen have been accompanied by a noticeable drop in temperature. Animals and sea life are confused, but people celebrate. There's a lot happening during a total eclipse, and it's difficult to take it all in. Steve O'Meara of Astronomy magazine told me that, "All total eclipses last only ten seconds," meaning that there's so much to observe that the minutes zip by with astonishing rapidity.
    I'm impressed that you saw your eclipse almost fifty years before I saw my first one.
    And partial eclipses are as common as dirt by comparison.

    During the total eclipse over Europe (Netherlands) in June , 1954 , on a clear and warm day the temperature lowered considerably and all birds went to their night places to sleep , somewhat horrible scenario , I remember .
