Yesterday's Eclipse Of The Sun Was Very Very Weird...

Suddenly I noticed it was very cold.
Suddenly I noticed it was very dark.
Suddenly I wondered what the hell was going on. Was there something wrong with me?
Was I having an out of body experience?
Was this the end of the world or just mine?
I looked up at my E-Meter which tells me all I need to know and more about my Solar System.
It said 0.7 amps were hitting my panels.
Minutes before it had been 18 point something.
And then I realised.
Today is Wednesday and I'm in Northland and the sun was to be 90 percent eclipsed by the moon. It would be more noticeable here.
If I'd been on Australias' Great Barrier Reef or in their city of Cairns, I could have shared the total eclipse experience with sixty thousand scientists and astromoners from all over the world.
But where I was was weird enough...
