The sky is always give an amazement in every possible way. It's sometimes cloudy, sometimes eclipses, sometimes there is a clouds during a total solar eclipse. Like the one of March 9, 2016 in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The totality was 2 minutes 31 seconds, and the whole eclipse was 2 hours 23 minutes and spanned about 35,7 arc degrees. During the dark of totality, Mercury was seen brightly next to the right of the Sun while Venus was even shining brighter next to it.
