Annular Solar Eclipse

I had gone to Point Calimere Wild life and Bird Sanctuary to see Birds & wild animals. But was lucky to have gone on 15th Jan 2010. This was the day of Annular Solar Eclipse- the first one in 45 yrs. The last one was on 23 Nov 1965 and the next will be on 26th Dec 2019. I met two gentlemen from Mumbai here. They were experts and had come with a welding glass. That is why I could take the photos. But the glass distorted the sun's image.. the dark centre became smaller than actual and the annular ring became thicker than it actually was. And I used the goggles issued by the Science Deptt.
