Despite an impending bad weather
due to an incoming low
pressure area near Philippines
which has affected the weather, some members of the
Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP) which
includes ALP President James Kevin Ty, Treasurer Andrew
Ian Chan, Secretary Christopher Louie Lu, PRO Edge Lat,
directors Iah Serna, Ronald Sison and member Miguel
Cajita and parents Trix and Mel Cajita and sister Trisha
They ried their luck and hope for a break in
the clouds and rain for them to conduct a free solar
public viewing to the public in celebration of
International SUNDay last June 26, 2016 at SM Mall of
Asia By The Bay.
Unfortunately, weather didn't give them
a chance after waiting from 2:30pm to 5:00pm .
They can only see a faint sun glow from thin clouds
passing over the Sun while drizzle rain continues to
fell on them.
With no chance of rain and thick
clouds stopping that afternoon, they
just concluded the event with some group shots before
going to Starbucks and Sbarro to have astro discussions
while sipping hot coffee and later dinner respectively
before going home in the evening.
ALPers took time out at
Starbucks after the conclusion of their free
solar viewing event due to drizzling rain and
thick clouds :(
After a long astro chat at
Starbucks, they proceeded to Sbarro restaurant
to have dinner before calling it a day.
