Solar Eclipse, 26 January 2009
After it was launched at the UNESCO on 15/16 January, the International Year of Astronomy was officially launched in South Africa during the partial solar eclipse on 26th January 2009.
In the morning of 26 January 2009, a partial solar eclipse could be seen from everywhere in South Africa. That, of course, was reason enough for having various related astronomy events on that day!
Here are links to pictures made during the eclipse:
