Luckily no dragons!

It seems to be cloudy whenever there’s an eclipse which makes it really hard to get a decent shot.
This is my best effort of yesterday’s partial solar eclipse. By the afternoon clear skies but no eclipse by then. Pah!
This would have been a disaster if I was about to be burnt as a witch and needed to get a dragon to start eating the sun or something. Luckily this time no such event occurred.

    That’s more that we could see! We were on the fringe of being able to see it, but with the skies and the low angle we couldn’t. You must have some kind of filter to be able to take pictures of the sun.

    …rather unimaginatively the filter is called a sun-filter!
    It looks like a piece of foil, very reflective but still lets some light through.

    I think its most successful outing was a few years ago when there was a transit of mercury.

    Bloody colander didn’t work at all. Waste of metal. Returned it to its former lowly position of straining vegetables.

    Hmmm…yes, I like to get as many uses out of things as possible but generally colanders are best for pasta or vegetable straining or wearing to protect one from alien space rays.
