Quezon City: Partial Annular Solar Eclipse
QUEZON CITY, Metro Manila - After a quick breakfast at McDonald's Emerald Avenue, we drove to Temple Drive, Green Meadows Subdivision, Quezon City to have an unobstructed view of the eclipse.
We were the only one parked along the road and the passing cars might be wondering what we were doing there with our camera on tripod. Edgar started shooting photos of the eclipse at 5:55am when the sun finally went unconcealed by the clouds. Close to 6:00am, we noticed a few more cars parking along the road to catch a glimpse of this astronomical event. There was even a taxi parked with a passenger taking photos from the inside.
We remember our school days when students were gathered on our school grounds to watch the solar eclipse equipped only with emptied bag of chips or x-ray films as solar filter.
