Caption

Eclipse observation cartoon from Punch magazine. A British flapper woman disciplines her son while observing the total solar eclipse on 29th June 1927. This was the last total eclipse to be seen from the UK mainland (as of 2008), a fact parodied here since the boy will not see another total eclipse from Britain in his lifetime. The eclipse started at 4.30am and totality lasted only 24 seconds. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes across the Sun as seen from Earth. They usually occur less than once a year and can only be seen from a small area of the Earth's surface.
