Solar Eclipse July 2009

A total solar eclipse can be seen in some places in India, China and Japan.

Solar means sun.

In Malaysia we can only see a partial solar eclipse.

This morning we saw the solar eclipse at the Tengku Tengah Zaharah Mosque, Kuala Terengganu.

I cannot see anything from the telescope but later we saw the solar eclipse from the TV.22072009(026)

The cloud was too thick so we cannot see the solar eclipse clearly.

Anyway we cannot stay long because we have to drive back to Kuala Lumpur.
