Total Solar Eclipse at Anatalya, Turkey
(Wednesday 29th March 2006)

We spent a week in Turkey,
centred around the total eclipse of the sun on 29th March 2006.
The darkening was now more rapid, more dramatic,
the sky was so blue it was almost purple.
Behind the mountain there was a reddening
of the sky as the Moon’s shadow approached
at over 800 metres per second,
and the duration on the centre line
is 3 minutes 48 seconds.
