Your Shot — Eclipse

The moon temporarily moved in front of the sun on Thursday producing a spectacular partial solar eclipse (as seen between between clouds and rain squalls). Photo was taken with a safe solar filter and a zoom lens. There are some thin clouds, but if you look closely, you can see one gigantic grouping of sun spots close to the center and several additional small sun spots scattered across the disc. This photo was taken near the end of the eclipse. Maximum coverage of the sun by the moon from our location was over 50 percent. If you have a photo that helps show what life is like here on the Twin Harbors and you want to share it with the rest of the community, email a high resolution version to photo@thedailyworld.com . Include your daytime phone number, the name of the photographer, a description of what’s happening in the photo, when and where it was taken and the names of the people who are prominent in the shot.
