Solar Eclipse

It was raining for the eclipse, so we couldn’t see the sun at all. We also couldn’t see the shadow falling across the city. However, it was pretty cool to see the city plunge into darkness at 9:36 for over 5 minutes.

Here is a time lapse I took of the eclipse.

    Wow that looks really cool!!
    Too bad we had to miss it… we defenitly liked to see Daft Punk as well :-)

  3. Yeah, it was cool. Wish it wasn't raining, but what can you do? I don't think we'll become eclipse chasers and travel all over the world for the next one though!

  4. ah man. i was at tiger leaping gorge hoping to see it, as it was a great location…i was hoping to get a timelapse, but i was told it was at 11:30, so when it got dark at 9:30, we thought it was just going to rain (there were lots of evil looking clouds). i'm glad you got the timelapse! :)
