Solar Eclipse from Queen’s University Belfast


Belfast does not seem to be the ideal place to catch some Sun, as to be judged from this suncream clearance I witnessed on my arrival here.

So no wonder my expectations were rather low this morning when the rain started pattering against my window. However, as if some awesome magic performed by Teru teru bozu, the sky cleared out just before the ecplise, allowing to see it fully! Then after the maximum, the clouds appeared again allowing to take some pictures though the clouds as well.  In particular, I’m very grateful to David Stewart, from the Irish Astronomical Association, who allowed me to take a shot through his telescope! Amazingly cool stuff.
