A group of six students and teachers
from the Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
(Czech Republic) including my daughter Hana participated on the Shadow-tracking
Expedition project. Observers of this project were positioned along the
totality belt from Niger to Turkey. This group was on the end of our
observing chain. The group was a part of the
expedition organized by Ladislav Hric
under patronage of the Slovak Astronomical Society.
They observed the eclipse on
a 1,330m high peak
above Göreme in Cappadocia in central Turkey, which offered
of the landscape around and under them. The peak was discovered
for the expedition by Jan Hollan, a Czech astronomer and science popularizator
from Brno. The observing conditions were good, which means strong wind and
thin cirrus clouds fortunately out of the Sun.
