Abstract: We report the first observations of absorption and enhancement in flux of high energy photons during thte total solar eclipse of October 24, 1995. For the purpose of these observations, we employed a scintillation counter to detect high energy radiation in the energy range of 10 KeV to 5 MeV. The scintillation detector was coupled with ADCAM 100 ORTEC computer for data acquition and analysis. We interpret the absorption in the fluw below 300 Ke V due to the passage of the Moon between the Sun and the Earth, while enhancement above 300 Ke V could have occurred due to the production of secondary radiations from high energy photons.
