Solar Analemma. This outstanding image from Alexandra Hart taken over a period of 4 years charts the midday position of the sun in the sky throughout the year. The north–south component of the analemma results from the change in the Sun's declination due to the tilt of Earth's axis of rotation. The east–west component results from the nonuniform rate of change of the Sun's right ascension, governed by combined effects of Earth's axial tilt and orbital eccentricity.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and looking forward to a great solar cycle 25!

Partial Solar Eclipse from Hobart

Post by mattwastell » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:05 am

Hi all
The Partial Eclipse from Tasmania was a very slight alignment. The skies were blue for the beginning & lasted well after mid-eclipse - my sister calls this an eye ball eclipse.....amateurs :P
Here is a quick process from about 1.24pm local time (mid-eclipse at 3% coverage).
Back to family activities!

Well done Matt - you have the advantage of being further south than me (central Vic). You must have had good weather as well. Regards, John W.

Thanks Derek - we have great view of snow capped Mt Wellington - snow is a novelty for sure.
Funny about chatting to Beekeepers - I have been helping my BIL to make bee hives!

Great eclipse shot...the subtle Ha features in sharp contrast to the lunar bite out of the disk!

A super cool image, Matt ! That disk is perfect and it shows all the beauty of the chromosphere, plus the eclipse.
