A Partial Eclipse in Phuket

A partial solar eclipse on Friday was visible today in Phuket.

The eclipse started at about 1:50 and 50% of the sun (the maximum) was covered at about 3:30.

Our engineering department welcomed the staff to have a look through their welding masks.  The staff all had a look with great interest and humor and then we invited the guests – with even greater interest, not what they had read about in their guide books

We tried to take photographs of the eclipse but to no avail and no thanks to all that studying I did……… should have stayed in the Scouts.

Jamie managed to get his pinhole camera to work - to comment on his  photo please visit here (it is his photo below).
