    A total solar eclipse is a fantabulous event

    The most interesting part is the "Diamond Ring"
    Ring appears twice, once when the sun is just about to be completely covered, and second when the moon starts to move away after the full eclipse.

    You can image search google for "Solar Eclipse Diamond Ring".

    I have once seen the total solar eclipse and it hapenned in the bright sunny afternoon.
    It gets so scary . Suddenly the afternoon turns like dark night for a few minutes.

    That was the first and only total solar eclipse i can remember witnessing.

    You won't be able to see it here in Singapore.

    If you have the $$ and time to spend, head to China.

    Juz want to let known that its NOT going to be a total eclispe in case people start nagging how come cannot see ah and etc. Haha!

    10% is about cutting the edge. Very minimal. It's even lesser than the one we experienced during the lunar new year in Feb.

    Well, too bad for us only like 10% of the sun will be covered......



    Looking on the bright side, there going to be an annular eclipse in 10 years time, and most of us should still be around by then

    Nikon.
    Nuff said.
