TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN - 11 AUGUST 1999
At approximately eleven minutes past 1 1.00am on Wednesday 11 August 1999, mainland England will witness the first Total Solar Eclipse since 1927... the next one will not be until 2090.
Although it is possible to view a partial Eclipse from most parts of the UK, large numbers of extra visitors are expected to head for Cornwall. Whilst every effort is being made to ensure that there is minimum disruption during this period, we would ask you to take account of the following points before planning a visit to the area during mid-August next year:
BEFORE YOU LEAVE...
Please make a confirmed accommodation booking before setting off (see 'Where You Stay' below)
Please ensure that you have a good supply of water or drinks, packaged food and essential toiletries
Please allow plenty of time for travelling to and from the County and do not attempt to travel on Eclipse Day
WHEN YOU ARRIVE... Please do not observe the Eclipse without following the recommended safety precautions Please do expect delays and traffic disruption HAVE FUN... and enjoy the variety of local events planned for Eclipse week!
