Partial Solar Eclipse Report
New year started with a great view of a Partial Solar Eclipse from all around Eastern Europe and parts of Africa and Asia. Our team was there to record the eclipse in many ways. The clouds were our major enemy, been there for almost all the time but, with small gaps to let us take some really nice pictures.
Also we were happy enough to have many of our friends here helping us do our experiments and take great images. This eclipse makes us remember the last two Total Solar Eclipse expeditions at Hangzhou (China near Sanghai) in 2009 and at Mangaia (Cook Islands) at 2010 summer, cause the clouds almost destroyed everyhing.
Fortunately the thin clouds enabled us to take pictures of the Lunar Limb with really high resolution so to make an accurate "profile".
