Jan. 15, 2010 Sunset Partial Solar Eclipse over Manila Bay

My boyfriend and I went to Manila to observe the sunset partial solar eclipse over Manila Bay. It was a stunning celestial sight because not only did we see a solar eclipse at sunset but also witnessed a faint solar halo surrounding the eclipsed sun.

We used Canon EOS Rebel XSi and Olympus FE-250 8 megapixel digital camera to image and document our observation. ūüôā

To the stars! ūüėÄ

Have a cookie bite of the Sun ūüôā

My boyfriend was covering the sun’s disk to clearly see the halo.

  1. Beautiful. I was in another place in Manila Bay taking pictures and video, and my view of the last few seconds of the setting sun was a bit blocked by the breakwater. I’m glad you captured it for us here.

  2. Love the picture of “Eddie” by the sea.. hehe.. Pwede pa post sa astrophils?hehe ^_^
