ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE REPORT







To watch the Annular Solar Eclipse we organized a program at Indirabai Girl’s Highschool. I stayed in the school with Gunjan Doshi, Archan Soni, Harish and Ashwin Vaghela. About 800 students saw the eclipse by projection and sun viewing goggles. Also our club members including Mr. Narendra Gor went to Rameshwaram in South India to watch the eclipse. Few of our members stayed in nearby cities of Bhuj to show the eclipse to peoples and students. Throughout Kutch District we showed the eclipse to about 4500 students. Through my telescope using a filter I saw two sunspots. We also tried to measure earth's radius in this program.
