Catching The Solar Eclipse

Viewing The Solar Eclipse
9th March was the day we can catch the solar eclipse. Chatters in school + news got Yining interested  and talking about the eclipse. So the kacang guni Dad dug up a sun filter from the hobbyist telescope set for her to watch the eclipse.

The eclipse started about 7:23am, so we could catch the beginning of the eclipse before Yining goes to school. We have a east facing window, so it was perfect for the observation.

By the time she got the hang of using the sun filter, it was something like this.

Okay! Mission accomplished! Something for her to go talk about in school.
