The solar eclipse was very partial here in Malmö, only 33%, and what's worse, the sky was almost completely overcast during maximum eclipse! All right, but the sky was much clearer during much of the eclipse, and some of us (not me!) got some quite decent photos anyway.
The woman in the picture testing her equipment is Tora Greve, 78 years old. She has seen 22 total solar eclipses worldwide, among them the midnight sun solar eclipse in Antarctica, in June, 2011. The person standing behind her in the photo is Erik Johansson, and while I don't know his exact age, I'd say he is not much younger than Tora (if he is younger at all), and he, too, was in Antarctica for the midnight sun solar eclipse of 2011! Tora and Erik told me today that they are members of a select group of only 400 human beings who have seen a midnight solar eclipse in Antarctica! I said that that makes them only slightly less cool than the 12 people who have walked on the Moon!
Erik Johansson has seen 24 solar eclipses worldwide!
P.S. Tora and Erik are going back to Antarctica for next year's solar eclipse (or maybe that is the solar eclipse of 2023). Whatever!
