Hello Astronomers!

Great expectation about Solar Eclipse in many countries! In Bolivia, we were able to watch a partial eclipse though.

As time allowed in midday, and also since we are in rainiy season. I was able to make som Astrophotography, using some Solar Viewer Glasses + DSLR Camera for that moment.

For the city of Cochabamba, the eclipse was visible as follow:

  • Start: 10:46
  • Maximum: 11:55
  • Percentage of Disk: 29%
  • End: 13:08

Using this Solar viewer filters, we were allowed to watch the Solar Eclipse by: Using Glasses and directly looking at it; Adapting one filter for using DSLR Photo; and Finally proyecting the image through a Telescope.

Follwing array as result of the session:

Looking forward for some other Astronomical events in December,

Clear Skies,

Gabriel Jaimes
