Great success for the Helios Observing Team while the members of the team successfully observed the Total Solar Eclipse 11 July 2010 from beautiful Mangaia.

First images of the eclipse can be found at the team site:
The very first images of the eclipse also published at SpaceWeather.com from the member of our team Constantinos Emmanouilidis.

Constantinos Emmanouilidis Says from Mangaia:
The Moon is now moving in front of the sun to produce a total eclipse over the South Pacific. The moon's shadow takes five hours to trace the 11,000 km path of totality. Along the way, sky watchers on Easter Island, the Cook Islands, the waters off Tahiti, and southern parts of Chile and Argentina will have the experience of a lifetime.
