She took her time.
But it was worth the wait.
We had sat and watched the NASA feed from Hawaii and were resigned to calling that our transit.
Outside the clouds twisted and danced, taunting us with the reflected orange glow of London.
But the pre-dawn showed promise.
We moved to our vantage point by the light of the moon.
And waited some more…
The atmosphere was electric, 50 people holding their breath.
The whir of telescopes.
A scramble to eyepieces, eclipse glasses scan the sky.
Shouts of joy and delight.
