Solar Eclipse in 2009

As I write, there is plenty of interest in solar eclipses because they're about to witness one in the United States.

I won't be there, but did travel to see one in China in 2009.

While much of the country was clouded over, we go lucky with clouds and saw it from the University of Nottingham's campus in Ningbo.

While my videos do it no justice, it was one of the most extraordinary things I've seen. Don't miss out if you have the chance!

I also uploaded some raw footage here.

The image below is a favourite of mine because it shows the Moon's shadow over Ningbo, where we were filming (and it shows Australia, my homeland!)

I traveled with astronomer Amanda Bauer.
