Well - that's about how far I got before the clouds fell in! It's quite funny to see it start at a different position!

thanks! This one is actually from near the end, after I got back home. But I agree. I've found it really interesting to see the different orientations of the moon, the shadow, and Saturn and Regulus in all the different photos, depending on where in the world they were taken.

I do have some from the start, though. I didn't post one at first because I thought it was bad quality. But now after seeing so many other shots, I realize that's just the way shots come out because of the differences between the shadow and the light, so I did just upload one more, from the beginning. It looks like Mr. Moon is wearing a hat made of light!

And I really have to commend you for your dedication for your shots! It must have been about 3 or 4 a.m. for you. Really not fair that the clouds moved in on you!

Great shot

Thank-you, Ossewa! I sure wish could have gotten some of the shots taken during totality to have been this relatively sharp. It turned out to be quite a challenge to photograph! Cheers!

Thanks Tonia - it's too bad these are so rare, but then again, I guess that's why they're special!

Hi Kamalyn , did you notice the way the eclipse began with the shadow moving horizontally across the moon but ended with it moving vertically ?

I made a collage of the whole sequence
