Solar Eclipse Pictures

A total solar eclipse is one of the most stunning celestial events a stargazer will see in their lifetime. (One is enough to hook you on eclipse-chasing!) The experience passes in mere minutes, from the Moon’s shadow racing along the ground, to the Baily’s beads that appear just before totalality, to the corona’s eery glow. A camera is essential to capture the event, and our readers have done so with spectacular flair.
