Weather forecasts indicated an excellent probability of cloudless skies for the eclipse, but one worry was obscuration due to smoke from the winter burning of fields widely practiced in southern Africa. Indeed, when we flew into Mfuwe airport in Zambia the day before the eclipse, the sky was murky with it, with several pillars of smoke rising into the sky, including this one from a burn near the airport. Fortunately, eclipse day had been declared a holiday in Lusaka, and there was little or no smoke in the air at our viewing site.
