Eclipse of the sun in Mauritius

We had today 1st September the rare opportunity to witness a solar eclipse between 12:27 and 15:44. Although the sun was only 90% obscured, it was still an interesting event. We did not want our guests on that particular day, to miss such a spectacular event and Alain provided dark protection glass.

Unfortunately, we were not blessed by good weather as dark clouds kept coming our way but around 14:10, the sky opened up and we managed to admire the peak of the eclipse.
It did not get completely dark but, one could clearly notice the reduction in sunlight and a sudden sharp drop in temperature.
The next solar eclipse in Mauritius is now scheduled for...2060.
