From Mr Matthew Duckett

Sir: The people of India will be happy (or not, depending on their point of view) to learn that Tuesday's solar eclipse is not in fact the last one that they will enjoy this century. That of 11 August 1999 will be total in north India towards sunset, after visiting parts of Cornwall and Devon earlier in the day.

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Duckett
