Abstract

Solar eclipses have been reported to have a strange influence on the behaviour of atomic clocks and pendulums, which has been attributed to some unknown feature of gravity. Here we correct this idea after being unable to detect any anomalous changes in the relative rates of three types of atomic clock, based on the ground-state hyperfine transitions of hydrogen, rubidium and caesium, during the solar eclipse of 11 August 1999 over central Europe.
