Solar Eclipse Observation Campaign

An observation campaign was organized today by Nepal Astronomical Society (NASO) on premises of Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST). The program was a grand success with around 550 participants. The whole program had LIVE telecast on Sagarmatha Television. There was also a chunky presence of other news channels, radio journalists and other media representatives.
14din welding glasses were also used as filters infront of TV cameras and the whole eclipse moment was caught. People observed partial (as seen from Nepal) solar eclipse with these filters, solar glasses and through projection on pin hole cameras. NASO also used its 8" dobsonian telescope for enlarged eclipse along with Sunspots.
