Raptor captures #eclipse2015 over Northern Ireland despite the clouds!

Uncategorised

March 20 2015. Larne Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland proved its unpredictable weather yet again with lots of cloud cover on the morning of the Solar Eclipse.

However using SWIR technology Raptor was able to acquire some excellent images of the moon passing over the sun through the cloud cover. Using the OWL 640 visible-SWIR camera coupled to a Fujinon SWIR optimised zoom lens with a 1500nm cut on filter the following image and movie was generated.
