Annular Solar Eclipse

This event, on 9th March 2016, is organised by my secondary school, School of Science & Technology to let students view the Solar Eclipse from the rooftop of the school. The rationale behind the programme is for the students to learn more on what is a Solar Eclipse and other things such as "How often does it happens?" and "What are the different types of Eclipses?" The next Solar Eclipse that is visible in Singapore is on 26th December 2019.

Here are some photos (not mine, some adapted from the SST Astronomy Club Blog) that shows some part of the activities that occurred during that day. Some of us from Astronomy Club contributed by being the class leaders by advocating the different types of Eclipses and how and why they occur.



 The first photo features my Main CCA Teacher, Mr Tan Hoe Teck showcasing the live stream of the Paya Lebar Methodist Girls' School via YouTube.




Here is my CCA member, Peihan presenting to the class about the Solar Eclipse.




Here is an SST Student looking at the Eclipse by using the giant "solar glasses" which is made by two boards with a sheet of mylar to protect their eyes from the rays of the sunlight.




Here is my Secondary 1 & 2 form teacher, Mrs Sin, looking at the eclipse by using the solar visors provided by us during the event.
