Not the best weather to watch a solar eclipse. The rain stopped a bit longer than the maximum phase of the partial eclipse but the clouds remained. Occasionally, small breaks in clouds, or thinner clouds that acted like filters allowed glimpses of the event. The AR2192 giant sunspot could be easily seen without any optical instrument.
