On behalf of Irkutsk Regional Astronomical Organisation (IRAO) and Irkutsk Planetarium, we offer Mount Burnett Observatory and all Australian amateur astronomers the opportunity to look with Irkutsk eyes and telescopes at the Solar Eclipse.
The eclipse lasts for 2 hours and 3 minutes in Irkutsk. It starts at 6:20 UT (4:20pm Melbourne time), maximum phase (0.33) at 7:22 UT (5:22pm Melbourne), and last contact at 8:23 UT (6:23pm Melbourne).
The event broadcast will include Russian and English narrative, views through the telescopes, including H alfa and show different techniques of observing the phenomenon.
