    Hi
    I would like to know how many fellow ILites watched the spectacular annular solar eclipse yesterday.
    A rare oppurtunity which was a once-in-a-millennium celestial alignment.
    We all are very lucky to have it in our lifetime!!!

    In an annular solar eclipse, the moon, because of its greater distance from the earth, did not mask the sun completely as in total solar eclipse.
    Since the moon's apparent size was smaller the sun appeared as a ring - annular.

    Please take part in this poll & vote whether you had a chance to watch it live on sky.
    Thank you.
