Last March 9th,
Per Edman , who was currently working just outside
Palembang, Indonesia observe by himself there. So he did
not have to go anywhere to see the Eclipse, just
outside his site office.
Wednesday morning 06:00 the sky was very clear, only
some small lines of clouds on the horizon, so it looked
very promising. He set up his Go Pro Hero 3 to do a
time lapse of the event, one photo every 5 seconds.
Started it before first contact.
Then he distributed some of his Welding Glass Squares
among my Foreign and Indonesian work friends.
the clouds started to for and covered up the sun almost
completely. They could just glimpse it for a couple of
seconds each time. He started to think that they
wouldn't get to see anything, but he left the Go Pro
anyway so he should get something.
07:19, two minutes before maximum, big holes in the
clouds appeared and they could see the eclipse!
He used his Canon EOS 600D with a 55-250mm lens
set at 250 mm, with a Solar filter and he got some GREAT
photos. Just before maximum , he removed the Solar
Filter and got even more AMAZING photos !
maximum the clouds stayed away and he watched until the
Very nice experience.
