Solar eclipse Myanamr 15 January 2010


We travelled to Monywa, Myanmar, in the middle of the totality path, to image the annular eclipse of the sun, on 15 January 2010.

Canon 5D mounted on an ETX125 tube, at f10.

Making shadows with a monk, creates diffraction images on the ground, a good way to observe the eclipse without any instrument!

Annular shadow at totality!

... and here comes the eclipse!

The annular totality:

For those who wondered, the dark spot is a sun spot, numbered 1024
