Report upon Observations performed in Panama over the Solar Eclipse of 8 April 2005, and Notes upon simultaneous observations by Prof. Hector Munera in Colombia and by Prof. Reg Cahill in Australia

To answer the most exciting question first: we observed absolutely no eclipse effect in Panama. And no eclipse effect was observed in Australia, while some ambiguous eclipse effect may have been seen in Colombia. However, in all of these three locations, there did appear most interesting periodic effects, like those seen by Latham in 1980, and like the ones we saw last year in Malaysia. These cry out for further investigation.
