Total solar eclipse of 2016 March 9

I had a great view of this eclipse from Tidore and I've put a low-res version of the video here. You might want to watch it with the volume turned down. See also the news item here.

We expect to produce a DVD of this eclipse and I'll post submission details for images/video etc. on this forum once I have the details.

Lovely eclipse on Tidore

I was also on Tidore with another group. After some dreadful overnight weather forecasts, we were delighted to see fairly clear skies - there was a little cloud around third contact, otherwise totality was in open sky. My highlights were the lovely prominence, visible as soon as totality commenced, the gorgeous golden colours on the southern horizon. And also our Indonesian hosts, who embraced the event with enthusiasm, friendliness and endless selfies. Great day, lovely eclipse.
