Astronomy for All
On the other side of the Pacific, Prof. Boonrucksar Soonthornthum, NARIT Executive Director and his team makes a considerably good progress today, deploying XXIX IAU General Assembly as a tool to expand NARIT's expertise in public outreach by meeting the head figures of the Office for Astronomy Outreach (OAO). The talk aims at connecting the OAO to SEA-ROAD (Southeast Asia Regional Office for Astronomy for Development) of which has been hosted by NARIT. In working together, there has been a great demand for more communications and networking from both sides. The both parties agree to come up with activities such as workshops to better understand the needs of each other to implement and execute public outreach platforms at a whole new level.

A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF SOLAR ECLIPSES
A “Solar eclipse” is a celestial phenomenon where observers on the Earth see the Sun become dim when the Moon blocks out the light from the Sun totally or partially. When a solar eclipse occurs, the Moon is in its orbit between the Earth and the Sun such that the Sun, Moon and Earth are in a straight line.
