Astronomy is a major passion in my family. However, no one has a career in this field. My Dad probably is the most maniac, he do believe in the existence of high intelligence alien I think :3 .
This photo is taken at June 1, 1983: Total eclipse in Java and Sumatra Island. Many astronomers enthusiast to be eye witness of this rare nature event that may just experienced once in their life. It was probably a shame moment in the history of astronomy in Indonesia. The government propaganda about the dangers of looking directly at a solar eclipse. Many people loosing their common sense and prefer to “stare” eclipse through television.
My Dad is an eye witness of total eclipse 1983, I congratulate to him. The photo is taken by my Dady. He buy a complete lenses and a professional camera. I told him that I never see a total eclipse. He replied, “I still save my lenses, just wait for the next total solar eclipse. We can “starring” together from backyard”
uuhm yeah, sounds lovely … we can “starring” together from our backyard on Monday, January 12, 2252 later … 😛
