Partial Solar Eclipse

Partial Solar Eclipse observation at RTU Research and Development Building rooftop on the date of May 21, 2012 5:45am-7:10am.

Using an 8 inch newtonian skywatcher in an Equatorial mount with a glass filter, we were able to take a picture of the partial solar eclipse using a 2MP camera phone.
                        We were able to see a few sunspots during the eclipse.

The photo was taken by RTU-Astronomy Technology students along with Ms. Ruby-Ann Dela Cruz.
