the day the moon blocked the sun...partially

Eclipse-shmeclipse. For the li'l old Newtown it was just another midday at the office. And quite a humid midday, really hot on the sunny side of deserted trafficless streets.  

Only a couple of single enthusiasts and several small groups with kids waited for the beginning of the show at the shore of Lake Luxembourg.

The show started on time. Unfortunately, because of the cloudy sky, it started behind the curtains. The viewers waited patiently for occasional glimpses of the Sun.

And their patience was rewarded with this amazing view.
