Partial solar eclipse from Opinicon

August 21st, 2017

Neighbour Tom Ray provided us with an amazing opportunity to observe the partial solar eclipse this Monday (21st of August 2017). While we were not in the direct path and thus able to see a 100% occlusion of the sun, we did see the shadow of the moon reach 65%. First contact was at 1:17 pm, maximum at 2:35 pm and last contact was at 3:50pm. A cadre of neighbours and users were in hand to witness the event.
