Crescent Sunset over Manila Bay

I wasn’t able to witness the Partial Solar eclipse :(. Thankfully, there were Filipino astronomers who got the chance to image the breathtaking phenomenon.

The picture below was taken by Armando Lee M.D. and Fermin Naelga Jr. – both members of the Philippine Astronomical Society (PAS).   It was featured in and NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day.

 I also saw awesome and dramatic pictures of the Partial Solar Eclipse taken by Ms. Alice, a member of the Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP).  Check her pictures here.

The next solar eclipse will be on July 22, 2009. The eclipse path will extend across India, China, a handful of Japanese islands and the South Pacific Ocean.

Hmm…I hope this time  I could observe the event hahaha!

Clear Skies!
