We watched the total solar eclipse on August 11, 1999 in Pinkafeld, Burgenland, together with friends. You will find a very similar photo gallery at Andrea's pages.

Preparations

We had travelled to Pinkafeld, a town in southern Burgenland in the very east of Austria the day before, staying at the Internat HTLB Pinkafeld. In the morning we had heavy rain so after breakfast we spent some time planning our route to the sun.

On the field

The weather forecast was not very encouraging for other areas within reach so we finally settled on a little hill near Pinkafeld, together with other "eclipsists".

Eclipse

A few more pictures of the total eclipse will be posted here shortly.
