Results from a precision gravimeter experiment in China 1997 demonstrate an assumed gravitational shielding present before and after the eclipse. No (or a very small) effect is demonstrated during the eclipse. This is explained in  as caused by a very massive corona around the Sun. An alternative interpretation is presented here by means of a compensating effect due to gravitational shielding effecting parts of our planet. Just before and just after the eclipse gravitational shielding effects exist in perpheral parts of our planet, but not in the gravimeter.
