We have arranged a schedule for the Eclipse Hunt. In fact we are planning to leave Colombo from 13th instant and are hoping to travel by either Train or Bus. Although there are flights available directly from Colombo to Jaffna, they're pretty expensive for your budget !!
So we opted in for Train or Bus as the transportation means. In addition to the telescopes and filters, there would be some electronic equipment such as Laptops, Webcams, Filters, needed for the Eclipse Hunt.
As the Live Streaming of the Eclipse will be a major focus, we have to make sure we got the best equipment possible and to have a fast internet uplink, We are negotiation a sponsorship at the moment for that, and I believe it would be feasible a well. We are gonna talk more with local Telecommunication providers and it's the priority of action plan at the moment !!
13th – Departure (by train/ bus – night)
14th – Arrival in the Morning at Vavuniya and departure to Jaffna
14th – Arrival at Jaffna
14th – a test streaming (Time permitting)
15th – Solar Eclipse 2010
15th – A night camp, late in the evening
