55 days to go till the annular eclipse. Am still having doubts that Qingdao would give a good view but am really praying it would. I have contacted two folks from the area through Couch surfing and they are interested.

There's no mileage promo yet in PAL so I might take the Shanghai route via Cebu Pac after all.

Youtube seems not replete of good annular eclipse videos... Here's one of the acceptable ones I stumbled upon.

Team Shanghai Solar Eclipse Expedition Video Tribute

A video tribute to Team Shanghai of UP Astronomical Society.
An 11-man team that defied the odds and went to a foreign land to document what would be the longest eclipse in our lifetime.

Annular Eclipse Pic

Am hoping to get a picture similar to this.

This photo is taken by Dennis Mammana

Am having doubts right now though if Qingdao would be the place to go since a maximum eclipse at sunset is a bit risky..

Been on hiatus for quite some time..

Anyway I hope this small tribute to Team Shanghai makes up for my absence
