Who flicked the dimmer switch? What began as a sunny spring day turned into an eerie glow as the solar eclipse turned morning to twilight.

And York responded with calm dignity various degrees of excitement, panic and delirium…

Aargh – it’s cloudy!

No, wait – it’s sunny! Hurray

No, wait, it’s cloudy again

Hi-tech viewing solutions were readied…

And people gathered on the streets

Or at various other locations

Colanders were deployed

And various pinhole devices

As something strange began…

The eclipse had a strange effect on some

Though not on all…

To some though, the eclipse was a sideshow

And for others, nothing out of the ordinary
