I was looking forward to this solar eclipse. I’ve never even seen one before and even though this wasn’t going to be a full solar eclipse it would still have been a first for me.
Somehow, I managed to let it slip my mind, and at 4:20 I found myself staring at my computer screen, scanning Twitter. Then I was making a mad scramble for my camera and I ran outside to try to get a photo or a video of the eclipse.
Unfortunately, there was nothing but clouds. It was a bit cooler out than usual. It was also a bit darker than usual. Well, not even that really. It wasn’t much darker than on a normal cloudy day. I took a photo of where the sun appeared to be with my camera. Unfortunately, my camera and Ubuntu don’t want to play nice together, so later I snapped this picture of the cloudy sky with my iPhone to share.
It seems like every time there’s an eclipse, Singapore has cloudy weather that prevents me from enjoying it. The last eclipse I tried to view was a lunar eclipse and it was cloudy that night as well. Downfall of a tropical climate I guess!
Hopefully I’ll get to see one sometime soon.
