Announcement   Announcement : Sun to ring the Moon
   posted by Anonymous on 30-May-2003 19:15:06 (1330 reads)
The event, which will see the Moon slip in front of the Sun's disc, will throw a dark shadow on the North Atlantic region. It is timed to last from 0345-0431 GMT (0445-0531 BST).



Annular eclipses are not quite as spectacular as total solar eclipses because the sky never goes completely black.

Viewers with the correct equipment will instead catch a brilliant ring of sunlight around the Moon. Under no circumstances, say astronomers, should people look towards the star with the naked eye; blindness could result.

Seen a piece about it on the news, Patrick Moore & Brian May have travelled north to see it.

Heres hoping the weather is kind to them.

It was quite nice; almost 90% of the sun disc was covered
seen from Lund, Sweden. In a 12" solar telescope (i.e. a
normal Meade with a heavy filter) you could see the
sillouettes of moon craters against the solar surface...

The eclipse occured quite early in the morning. We had a party
here at the astronomy department from nightfall all the time
up until the peak of the eclipse at 5:33 the following morning!
