The name Sir Patrick Moore is synonymous with astronomy and his monthly BBC series “The Sky at Night” is the longest running television series devoted to Astronomy in History.

It is with great honour that today on Discovery Enterprise we present our first and one really exciting episode of the Sky at Night concerning total solar eclipses.

In this episode of the Sky at Night – “Solar Eclipse (Turkish Delight)” goes back to the solar eclipse that occurred Antlaya in Turkey in March 2006. This episode explains some key-elements about solar eclipses and records the excitement, expectation and intricate variety of viewing and recording methods available, from the elegant tea-strainer to the more sophisticated equipment. This instalment was first aired on March 31, 2009.
