Eclipse day (3 November 2013)

It was a cloudy day — even a thunderstorm just before first contact was to occur.
Then — a hole opened in the sky just at the right time. (See attached photos.) and we saw 75% of the sun obscured by the moon.
We hosted more than 300 students, teachers, villagers, and local leaders at Ailanga Junior Seminary – the location for the Center for Science Education and Observatory.
In the past three weeks we taught in 10 schools — reaching thousands of students and about 100 teachers.
