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 â€œcelestial dogâ€ 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.
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 thereâ€™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! Thatâ€™s incorrect.
