I was about to ask what time. -_-

Well, I live in Finland. Sun never sets here in summer, so I won't be able to see it.

OMG. Another Finnish around here.
Yeah, sun is annoying here at summers. Can't sleep or see anything cool.

Wow they've been happening quite frequently lately.

It's only Lunar eclipses I've seen, and I've seen plenty. I've never seen a solar eclipse! :(

Seems like maybe most of Europe would be missing it! xD

Hmm... seems my calculations for the time zone I'm in were wrong. So I can still watch it live.. I hope. Anyways the live airing of that is great as well. Thanks! :D

Can't see anything

It is strange, every time some sort of eclipse is happening, it gets cloudy :(
