See NASA page for a description of the path of this eclipse. Here's a small view of the path:
We were nearly ideally situated in Hoofddorp - the NetApp European Headquarters - 93% or so totality.
But wait, where is Hoofddorp? It appears on no known map. It is north of the path of totality. Check out this composite map to give you context - about 300km north of the center of totality.
Weather maps for Europe looked grim! Satellite maps showed clouds across much of the path of totality, so I didn't bother trying to see the real event in places like Stuttgart, Reims, Bucharest. So I caught a partial eclipse.
A quick visual check outside confirmed this. We waited.
The clouds broke and people gathered. Linda Wood is using recommended eye protection.
It sort of looked like a bunch of people waiting for the arrival of the mother ship. But everyone was out there from our office building, watching the sight. It got noticeably darker, and someone thought it got cooler too.
I constructed a pinhole telescope to view the event, using various boxes, paper and foil from the office. The projected image was small - sheesh, I forgot, I haven't done this since I was a kid!
If we had been in the path of totality, we would've seen a sequence like this (obviously not my pictures, and obviously we didn't see this):
