Eclipse of a Lifetime

As a kid I used to go to my attic and watch the sky for hours at a time. Once when I was 15 I caught a shooting star, it was just for a couple of seconds, I still remember the excitement of the moment.

Solar Eclipse

Today there was an Annular Solar Eclipse and I got lucky to see it. It’s the first time I am seeing one. FYI, an annular solar eclipse is:

A special case of solar eclipse is called annular eclipse. It occurs when the moon is farther from the earth than normal distance, hence, its apparent size is not sufficient to cover the sun completely.

Therefore, even though the sun-moon alignment is perfect, the moon appears slightly smaller in diameter than the sun and a thin ring of sunlight is visible around the dark silhouette of the moon,โ€ explained Anil Yadav, incharge, Indira Gandhi Planetarium


Teachers were also equally excited to see the event, it was real fun to witness something like this with teachers and friends. Today is a memorable day ๐Ÿ™‚

See Some Images of Annular Solar Eclipse on Google, I don’t know how one can shoot a solar eclipse, maybe using a filter on the camera.
