Important Safety Information:

It is absolutely essential that you do not look directly at an eclipse. Even a few seconds exposure to the Sun’s UV radiation can do permanent damage to your eyes and could blind you.


BISP staff and students will have a very rare opportunity to see a near total solar eclipse this coming Wednesday.

You’ll need to get up very early however as the event starts at 06:29 am is over by 8:29 am. The maximum extent of the eclipse will be observed at 7:25 am.

Check the following website for details including an animation and live video link: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/thailand/phuket

To view the eclipse safely, come to the covered walkway between the MTB and the refectory on Wednesday morning before registration, where Mr Richardson and Mr Chambers will be on hand to let you view the eclipse directly and indirectly without risking damaging your eyes!

Ask your form tutor to display the animation and click the ‘live’ button during tutor time.
