Happy viewing. I'll post comments later.

Here is my report from later on 20 April: it was an impressive eclipse, with a very sharply defined corona. The prominences were like I have never seen before, with one very extended prominence and one beautifully curved prominence that had a broken filament. The sky was crystal clear and the spectators at my site here in Exmouth were quite excited by the whole thing.
I have added two photos from the photographers next to me. The one above shows the Diamond Ring effect, and the one below totality with the solar corona.
