Solar Eclipse Captured from Jakarta, Indonesia
I took these pictures from my backyard in Southern Jakarta, Indonesia. Thanks God the sky is not too clear and a bit cloudy, so I can use clouds as natural filter for my camera. My cousins watch the eclipse through the sunglasses layered with negative film.
The eclipse started at 3:24pm (GMT+7) and the pead is at 4.40pm. It's so bad the cloud is getting thicker when it reaches the peak.
FYI, it's my first time watching solar eclipse! :)
