Early afternoon I read that the sun would look like a fat banana not long before setting. What a pity it would probably be cloudy then I mused.
A little after 5pm we drove out of the supermarket car park, turned left and there it was, sun shaped like a fat banana! So brilliant it was hard to look at it! Hard not to look. A photo or two didn’t capture the sight.
We kept driving with difficulty then the sun was clouded over creating vivid cloud pictures with brilliant edges.
Ps I have ordered eclipse viewing glasses for the next sighting!
