Thanks to Dianne Johnson for telling me about this rare event which took place in such a clear and starry night.
oooh - you got it, and you were lucky enough to have the moon low enough in the sky to get this really nice combination! I was wondering if we were maybe going to see the eclipse with the moon balanced on top of the tower in Toronto. But instead - an interesting next installment in your series: The moon burned out and escaped from his dividers! (It would be interesting if you come up with a unique tag so all of your shots with this statue can be brought in on the same page) :-)
BEAUTIFUL!!! That was all I got before the clouds covered everything :-(
Kamaly, again it was very very cold and windy night here at the time of the eclipse. I wouldn't mind my eyes were in tears from cold but the planetarium was crowded and I couldn't hide my tears so well from them. So I had to act quickly, my alignment is not as what I wanted but this is what I got. Thank you and best wishes, Volkan
Sonny, your composite image is great too :) Cheers, Volkan
Volkan, if people kidded you about the tears, you could have told them you were overwhelmed by the beauty of the eclipse :D Though I suppose it would be more manly to just have admitted it was cold! It was cold here, too, and the moon very high. So the options I had for 'background' were pretty limited. But recognize the other elements in one of the shots I got? (You'd have appreciated the location, and the number of people who came to the spot, all with cameras!)
Thanks for the advice Kamaly. But since I am alone usually, my tearfull state is not much seen by anyone. The eclipse night was one rare exception :)
