Total Solar Eclipse is Striking, If Elusive, In the Faroe Islands

In the days leading up to the astronomical event , tourists filled streets and restaurants in the Faroe Islands, gawked at the quaint buildings in the city center of centuries-old capital city Tórshavn, and fretted about the changing weather forecast. On Friday, a view of the total eclipse proved elusive and the reactions were mixed.
