14th November Eclipse. The Second Solar Spectacle for 2012.
The celestial mechanics doesn't stop for exams, nor exams for the celestial mechanics.
***WARNING*** Never look directly at the Sun to observe a transit, solar eclipse or sun spots. Consult an expert. Use a telescope properly configured for solar viewing. Use goggles certified as safe for solar viewing.***NEVER*** improvise with sunglasses or other filters. ***BEWARE*** of cheap telescopes and filters. Only use equipment from a reputable supplier. Safe viewing instructions are provided by NASA and Exploratorium. I (webmaster) have personal experience with the method described as "projecting the image with binoculars". It works well.
