Partial solar eclipse - 10.6.2021 at 13.20 - 10.6.2021 at 14.50 Ruokolahti Observation number 99017

Visibility IV / V

Emma Bruus, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

This June day was the best for tracking a partial solar eclipse. The temperature was involved, and there was no need to excite the sun's visibility in any way. There were only a few random cloudballs in the sky that would not be an obstacle under any circumstances. The scent of the surrounding flower meadow and lilacs was intoxicating and far away in the woods a cuckoo roared.

With the moon disk already clearly on the sun, I began to explain the incident to the family’s three-year-old. This had already been somewhat primed by Group Search, which is a side issue. It is hardly a coincidence that there were a few children's programs about (complete) eclipse just before this day of eclipse. Perceiving the matter was not quite simple for the little one with the blackout glasses, but in the end I got a clear comment "It needs to be fixed!".

The comma group 2829 also stood out on the lower right as a small black west on the lower right of the 'barked' sun with a 400mm telezoom.

Once the blackout was adequately documented, we moved to a neighbor for blackout coffees. From the tasty ball monk, it was easy to bite just the right size piece before the complete monk eclipse.
