Looking good here, hardly and clouds.
The moon covers about 1/4 of it now. remember, don't look directly at it. use welding glass or special
solar filters.

Looks good here, I'm using a black polythene rubbish bag over my sunglasses and works well - looks over half covered here, still light out though

it's getting slightly dimmer now, I can't tell by looking through my office window whether the clouds are over or not now, I was expecting it to get as dark as just before sunset but I don't think it will get that dark, just cloudy day dark

The further south you are the less you see covered.
it should finish around 12.10-12.15 as the last of the sun is uncovered

just a slight slither of the sun left here, looks like a fingernail, still very light though, you can feel the heats gone from the sun though

looks like it's past maximum here, seemed to be just over half covered and the light was noticeably dimmer, almost twilighty and there was no heat in it.

awesome stuff
