Partial Solar Eclipse: 20th March 2015

Hi guys,
I had the opportunity to watch Friday’s partial solar eclipse and even to take some photos.


All were taken with Panasonic DMC-FZ38.

I captured it through my handmade cardboard glasses – their filter was made from the magnetic part of floppy disc. The colors on the photos are the same as when watching through the floppy disc filter.

Location was in Slavičín – Divnice (GPS: 49.1031669N, 17.9106900E), where I work.

The time of this event was before the noon, it happened between 09:43 and 11:58 am. I was taking the shots from 10:20 to 10:40 am.
