Eclipse Glare Full by Zhon Eclipse Glare Full by Zhon
I lack proper lens equipment for shooting this event.

However!
I was able to catch a really cool flare with this!

This is when the moon was in the absolute center of the sun, causing the really neat ring effect!

I'm confused... is your planet in a binary system?

As far as what most of the inhabitants of my planet believe, no. We just have a primary sun. However, there are some of the galactic-intellectual inhabitants that are debunking the theory, and introducing the "Nemesis" hypothesis that there is a very dim dwarf star that is in orbit along with our sun.
There is no observational evidence of such a dwarf star, however was hypothesized to explain extinctual events that had occurred in the extreme past years.

Pretty cool. Wish I could have seen it. If I remember correctly, it was raining here that day.

Vary neat looking, too bad I could see it myself too cloudy, or my eyes even be able to look at it XD At least we humans can use artificial mean to see it.

Oh yay! I got shots like this I need to upload! I thought my camera was flipping out.

Missed the full eclipse though :( so sad. Did you get any nice ones of the ring of fire by any chance?

My camera flipped out horribly too!

I dont have a solar lens for shooting into the sun....but I was able to get this one through a welding mask: [link]
This is the only one I was able to find by someone else thus far: [link]
