Eclipse report

Hi Y'all,
Hope you all enjoyed the eclipse today.

I had a small crowd on the roof at work with a telescope for projection and some solar glasses filters. We could follow the eclipse till about 4:20 when the Sun dipped behind the hill of Malcha.

Gadi got some great pictures from Tel Aviv, all the way down to sunset

And my neighbor Zev, got a great shot just before the sun set over the hills of Gush Etzion.

Don't worry, if you missed the eclipse, the next one visible from Israel will be on March 20, 2015!

 Stay up to date with the Sun, planets and stars.
