fancy weather thing-a-me-jiggies!

Just found out about this little weather fancy schmancy stuff! i might have to try and crawl outta bed at like, 9am on my day off (boo, minus ten points) sucks, if i knew bout this i would have brought my proper camera and not my piece o' crap thing that somehow by sheer fluke seems to work very similarly to something i made in school with a pinhole and a shoebox.

good thing i found these super safe instructions ....

The largest solar eclipse in Hong Kong since 1958 will take place July 22, the Hong Kong Observatory says.
If the weather is fine it will be visible as a partial eclipse in Hong Kong from 8.15am to 10.46am, with the maximum eclipse occurring at 9.26am when 75% of the sun's diameter will be blocked by the moon.
As the sun's elevation is high the eclipse will be visible in most places with an unobstructed view to the east. However, to avoid eye damage the Observatory warns people not to look directly at the sun or through telescopes. A safer way is to project the sun's image through a pinhole or a telescope onto a piece of white paper or cardboard and view the projection.
