    Yup, I'm disappointed too, it looked like the sun but a bit brighter than usual... Although the ISS got a sick shot of it

    No take it from me, astronomy sucks. I've not done half of it yet but so far it is the most dull thing I have ever learned about :L. The uncertainty on the values you work out are the size of a house!
    Yeah I figured it would blow from what I've read about it.

    It isnt in syllabus but our teacher said to derive it ourselves (if we did maths) and it was fine, standard log integrals and such

    Lol they're all ****. Medical, astronomy etc

    Applied sounds good though! That's what I'd want. Ngl disappointed with Physics as an A Level, hope it gets better
    Oh yeah the exponential equations are fine I'm just saying for those of us who aren't in love with maths

    Completely clouded over where I was, so no eclipse to be seen. We watched it on the BBC during Chemistry.

    Head of Science walked in and called it the worst eclipse ever.

    It was a bit crap.

    I don't understand people who said stuff like that... Every eclipse is the same thing, how can one be "worse than any other" is a pretty stupid thing to say, especially for a science teacher :lol:

    Neither do I.... how an eclipse is viewed is down to where you are and the telescope/technology you've got

    Eclipses can be fairly different depending on the season, the weather, the inclination of the Earth (ergo, where you view it from).

    No I mean it's an eclipse, at about 80-90% totality, literally every eclipse of 80-90% totality is going to look similar. It's not like the moon is going to become transparent and there is going to be a "bad" eclipse

    The reason most people are disappointed is either they didn't do their research and prepare, or was due to the weather

    Thanks. I'm sure it will be solely based off the fact that mocks are over.

    Yeah that sounds like a pretty valid reason to be disappointed
