Total Solar Eclipse 2006 near Antalya
More or less FINAL VERSION 2006/05/23
Despite the information that the last 15 years on March 29th the sky was
covered with clouds in Antalya we gambled and took the trip with a large
group of Austrian astronomers to Turkey. In short - we won! The weather
on eclipse day was perfect!
We - (My wife Franziska,
Manfred Fischer + Uli Leitner and Sepperl
Schwarz + wife Anny and me) spent the week in the Hotel Viva Lindita 12km from Side (63km
Antalya). The organisation done by ASC Conrad was perfect.
It was my 4th total eclipse, this time direkt at the swimming pool. All eclipse pictures
are a cooperation between Manfred Fischer and me. The 3:45 duration needs a
lot of hands and computer power to get as much pictures as possible and still to
have time for enjoying visually the impressive event.
