Star trails are caused when a camera is mounted on a fixed tripod, and the Earth moves below it during a long exposure.

Total Solar eclipse UK 1999

A total Solar eclipse occurred in the UK on 11 August 1999, It was visible across southern Europe and should  have been visible in most southern parts of the United Kingdom.
In London a partial 97% eclipse was seen through varying amounts of cloud, but in Cornwall where many astronomers went, it was totally clouded out for the whole of the eclipse.

I projected the Sun's image via binoculars onto white card where I photographed on Kodak print film.
