The solar eclipse of 8/11/99 seen from Balatonfüred in Hungary.

99% totality. Only a few seconds to go...

Totality! At Balatonfüred this lasted 2 min 23 seconds.

Moments after the end of totality, we are all nearly in tears.

The eclipse drew a crowd to our hotel, including a tour group of Japanese amateur astronomers.

Lake Balaton was also a lovely place to relax and enjoy the sun, as Katy demonstrates.
