I saw this solar eclipse, 17 years ago today which was also a Saturday. I saw it through thinnish cloud which was actually thick enough to make it visible at times with the naked eye. The BBC news report said it was the first solar eclipse to be seen live over the internet. Hard to believe it was 17 years ago.
