solar eclipse, superlight torsion balances, paraconic pendulum, gravitational constant


For the first time simultaneous observations over reaction of two extralight torsion balances (Kiev, Ukraine) and a paraconic pendulum (Suceava, Romania) are spent during a partial solar eclipse on January, 26th, 2009. Significant correlation between indications of two torsion balances and a paraconic pendulum removed on distance of 440 km is found out. Prior to the eclipse and after the phenomenon termination the correlation was absent. The conclusion that a solar eclipse serves as a factor determining reaction of torsion balances and a pendulum is received.
