DescriptionThis was the culmination of a truly epic day. On the way to the eclipse site, we had to ford a flooded road. Then, the Ugandan President decided to visit our predetermined eclipse viewing site causing us to go to a secondary location. Then clouds built over the sun in the late after noon causing us to abandon that site with 20 minutes to go. We rushed 3 km through a traffic jam to get out from under the clouds, where we saw the eclipse through thin cirrus. That was an advantage to me because I was able to see the 15 km wide shadow of the moon projected onto the cirrus clouds, which I would not otherwise be able to see. This image was taken with a point and shoot camera I had around my neck, which I had programed to take a sequence of three bracket images.
LocationSt-Hubert airport (CYHU)
DatenOV. 3RD 2013
EquipmentSmall 500 mm catadioptric telephoto 1000 OAKS SOLAR FILTER (not uded for this one) Nikon D50
DescriptionBy a matter of pure luck because my observing site was not decided in advance, I noticed that the ecliped Sud will rise next to a distant power line. Low cloud obscured partially hampered observation but I was a cool and cold event (-5 C)
LocationMount Vernon Place, Baltimore, Maryland
Date6:37 AM +/- on November 3, 2013
EquipmentCanon Digital Rebel T3i on fixed tripod. Hoya NDX400 filter for the sun image.
DescriptionBaltimore was treated to just a couple of minutes of the eclipse at sunrise, before clouds obscured the remainder of the event. The photo shows the Washington Monument at Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore in the foreground. Composition of two images--one of the landscape and one of the eclipsed sun through the NDX400 filter. The photograph was inspired by A. Aubrey Bodine's iconic sequence of the July 9, 1945 eclipse, as seen from what we believe is the very same rooftop.

EquipmentCanon Digital Rebel XTi on tripod with Canon EFS 75-300mm zoom set to 300mm.
DescriptionThe Corolla Beach Lighthouse stands in silhouette with the partially eclipsed sun as seen from Waterlily, NC. I used my Magellan 310 GPS to put the lighthouse at the correct bearing, as calculated with USNO's MICA 2.0. The lighthouse was 5.8 miles away.
LocationFolly Beach, SC
EquipmentCanon digital SLR with Nikon 500mm mirror lens.
DescriptionA cold front just moved through so we had perfect skies with a nice inversion layer. Lots of people on the beach trying to capture the event with iPhones. Digital photography makes this stuff really easy!
