My advice "book a passage to Zambia" (Star turn, THES, July 9) was in response to the question "if it's cloudy in Cornwall, when is the next chance to see a total solar eclipse?" and my answer referred to June 21 2001, when a total solar eclipse crosses Zambia. In Cornwall and Devon there is a 50:50 chance of sufficiently clear skies, and this does not increase greatly in France or in Germany. You have to go to Romania, Turkey or Iran for really good weather prospects.
