A couple nights ago, 20 May, we had the great fortune to witness the Annular Solar Eclipse. That is annular (ring shaped), and not annual... an event like this last occurred in 1994, and will again in 2023. Although we were not in the direct line so to see a perfect "ring of fire," we did experience the ephemeral beauty of the juxtaposition of our moon atop our sun from atop a white sand dune.
|The four major stages of the eclipse before sun and moon set together. I took this photo (and all my photos) with a Nikon D40x that I have had for over five years now. I also used a 70-300 telephoto, a polarizing filter, and tripod.|
