geographic location of where the photos were taken from.
photos from eclipse.
the short version of the story:
- flew 23 hours from the US to kenya through the netherlands.
- chartered 2 hours flight to the middle of no-where from nairobi.
- cloudy up until about an hour before the eclipse started
- sky clears up
- eclipse begins!
- 5 minutes before totality, 30 mph winds pick up, clouds cover the sun
yes, we missed totality.
ah well, it was a great trip. maybe next time we'll get to see totality. i heard reports from other camps in the area that they could see some of the totality through thin clouds, but no corona was visible because of the clouds.

I've begun planning my 2017 total solar eclipse adventure. I hope I won't need to outdrive clouds.

I was lucky to grab the 10 May 1994 annular solar eclipse from NH. Got it at the centerline too. Way lucky.
Good Luck, and keep the faith!
