Vinpower Taiwan Marvels at the Solar Eclipse

The total solar eclipse of July 22, 2009 appeared at approx 9:00~10:00am Taiwan time today. Chinese mythology refers to a solar eclipse as the “celestial dog” which is thought to eat the sun during an eclipse. Since this is not a common event, it was a great opportunity and bonding experience for members of our Taiwan office to marvel in this amazing occurrence.

This is not the best way to take a solar eclipse picture, best to leave it to the professionals!

Another example of what not to do during a solar eclipse. Do not look directly at the sun during an eclipse, even when it looks as though there’s minimum exposure. It is just as dangerous as looking directly at the sun itself during a normal day. Self-made solar filters using floppy disk removed from its case, a Compact Disc, a black color slide film, etc. must be avoided at all costs. Hey girls! That’s incorrect.

All the smiles during the eclipse, a great way to show off a magical day!
