Total Solar Eclipse view from our terrace

These photos are of the view from our terrace at the time of Total Solar Eclipse, which occurred on 22 July, 2009.
The eclipse started from Arabian Sea & first city of the starting point was our Surat. We were very excited about it. Our city was buzzing days before the event, with astronomers & visitors coming from all over the world to see it, as it was the only total & longest solar eclipse of 21st Century.
It had been raining very heavily for the last fifteen days & we were afraid that it would rain that day too & we would not be able to see the eclipse.
& sure enough, our fears came true. The sky was overcast. The Sun was not visible at all. Still what we experienced was unbelievable! I have never seen such thing in my life! Only word that comes to my mind is-wow!
I can never forget that experience! Surat was lucky to have seen even this! Once in a lifetime opportunity!
Just see the beauty of our nature.....

Coming out of darkness.........
