Partial Eclipse of the Sun over Phuket


The title should tell you already that it's sunny. Been a hot, sunny week here, the last few days of what we call the peak season, the mad New Year tourist rush.. now it's just normal "high season". After a busy week, I plan to enjoy my day off tomorrow. The plan is to at least go and do something interesting, although of late we have tended to just go to the beach.. however, I need something to blog on my Phuket Blog.. have a few things planned such as a hike up the Big Buddha hill, a trip to James Bond Island and plan next week to finally blog my favourite pizza in Phuket!

Today, for a short time, the sun was obscured, partially. By the moon. We got a partial eclipse - I would love to see a full eclipse one day. A partial eclipse is hard to see without gadgets and something to prevent you from giving yourself a DIY Lasik treatment. Do NOT stare at the sun. Not good idea. It's very bright. So I tried the pinhole method.. jab a hole in a piece of card and hold it over another piece of card to let the shape of the sun appear. It kind of worked too...

Partial Eclipse of the Sun over Phuket, 15th January

See the thing that looks like a moon... well that is the sun with part of it eclipsed by the moon. Groovy.

Have a nice weekend everyone!
