20th March saw the deepest Partial Solar Eclipse in Ireland since August 1999. Our initial worries that the weather would let us down turned out not to be the case - we chose four locations to maximise our public contact and increase the chances of someone seeing something, so with a main base at QUB where over 1000 people observed the eclipse with us and the astronomers from QUB, then over 200 more at the outlying locations at Scrabo, Larne and Portballintrae, we all had an excellent morning, with some cloud and rain just preventing us seeing fourth contact. And of course Andy McCrea took to the skies over the North Atlantic and saw 4 mins of totality from a Falcon aircraft travelling at Mach 0.9 to follow the shadow as far as possible!
