Sky & Telescope editor in chief Rick Fienberg caught the eclipse from
Garching, Germany but had to outwait some lousy weather to do so.
"At one point, I had to rush my equipment back into the hotel to get out of a sudden rain shower," reports Fienberg, "but I was determined to see something through whatever sucker holes I could find. I saw bits and pieces of the eclipse during totality, which was gorgeous since the eclipse was bright and the Moon was in a rich star field in Leo."
How did you do? Judging by the first burst of images sent to our gallery, the eclipse was quite stunning.
