Images of the 1999 Total Solar Eclipse


Total Solar Eclipse 1999

One of the most anticipated solar eclipses of the 20th century took place August 11 1999. The last eclipse of the century, the last eclipse of the millennium, and crossing Europe - many people pinned their hopes on seeing this one. Unfortunately for those in Europe, much of the eclipse path was clouded out. Things were much better in Turkey and Iran for viewing the eclipse with clear blue sky.
