Madley Event - Favour please

9 posts in this topic

Hi All,

As you may know I was working with Mark and MESC on Friday's eclipse event.  My priority was getting the children to do a bit more than just watch the eclipse.  So we did the booklets, got them recording, plotting graphs etc....

I have to write up the work I did as a dissertation for my astronomy degree (deadline Friday  :eek: ).  

I was so busy working with the kids etc that I have no pictures (well I had 8 on my phone until they got corrupted!).  I'd love to add some into my project, and to put a few on my website too.

So my request is twofold please.  

If you have any photos of the event that you wouldn't mind me using could you post them in this thread?

And secondly if you have any feedback on what the kids seemed to be doing/interested in etc that would be great too.

Many thanks 

Helen

Hi Helen,

Here are a couple, including a panorama I took.

Quality probably won't be great posting on the forum but can email if needed. Hope they are of some use.

Cheers,

Stu

Helen I did not take any pictures but I had quite a few comments from the kids:-

They were all very interested in the flames (prominences) :grin: and nearly all asked how big they were

Another popular question was how many times bigger is the sun compared to the earth and how far away is the sun.

They were all very enthusiastic and very well mannered.

Thank you for the Welsh cakes by the way....most delicious :grin:

Helen, not sure about consent, so I will send pics to you tomorrow rather than posting them here if you don't mind. :)
