Angola 2017
Lead sponsor: timeanddate.com
Eclipse glasses sponsor: NCR Angola

On February 26th 2017 an annular solar eclipse swept across southern South America and central Africa. We organised a series of educational events at the Instituto Superior de Ciências de Educação (ISCED) in Huambo, Angola, including a live broadcast with Slooh. We’re extremely grateful to our lead sponsor for this project, the wonderful timeanddate.com.

We were at Tadulako University, on the island of Sulawesi, for the March 9th 2016 total solar eclipse across Indonesia. We organised a cross-border collaboration with students at Western Kentucky University in the US for an experiment to study the solar corona. This project was generously sponsored by Garuda Indonesia.
