John Colet School students observe the eclipse

Our primary students were thrilled to observe the partial solar eclipse on Friday 10th May.  School parent Marissa Nerwich set up her telescope on the school lawn, and projected an image of the eclipse onto a screen. Everyone also had a turn looking at the eclipse wearing safety glasses.

Mrs Nerwich, who works as a guide at Sydney Observatory, explained that the eclipse would be a full annular one when viewed from Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory, but that 39% of the sun would be obscured from our perspective in Sydney.
