Posted March. 20, 2007 07:15,   


For 88 minutes, from 10:48 a.m. to 12:16 p.m. on March 19, a partial solar eclipse was observed. It is a phenomenon in which a part of the sun becomes covered by the moon when the sun, the moon and the Earth come into a straight line. These photographs were taken between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. in 15 minute intervals with a Canon Mark II N at shutter speed: 1/8000, converter: 1.4, aperture: 32, with a 500mm lens and a ND 8x filter. Children who participated in the Partial Solar Eclipse Observation event held at the Nuri Observatory in Daeya Library, Gunpo, Gyeonggi, are observing the eclipse through a solar filter.
