Summary: On Wednesday, 11 August 1999, soon after 11:00,a.m. the UK was treated to a total solar eclipse - it was the first in 70 years. Looking directly at an eclipse can be extremely dangerous - so many special eclipse viewers were handed out. Some came as free gifts with magazines, others were handed out at schools.
