Where on the Earth is that? It looks like Ice in much of the scene.

The spectacular picture link suggests it is somewhere (50N 05W) over Europe (the south-east corner of England) at 10.13h UTC.
Here's the path of the 1999 solar eclipse.

It was a hot day in summer, so just clouds, no ice.
I remember driving to Germany to see the total eclipse, but the weather forecast made me drive to France, where we got a lucky break in the clouds at the moment supreme.
