Jacob Kapere’s message in Vanuatu

I filmed the eclipse on the island of Epi at about 2 pm on a digital video camera VX100 E. I was very very close to the annular phase and I had the camera on until the partial phase, which you could see very clearly on the film.
Malakula, the next island further north, was very dark, so that you couldn’t see it. It was situated at about 25 miles from Epi island.
