This sequence shows the majority of the annular eclipse photographed at intervals. The sequence begins in the upper left hand corner showing the full solar disk with sunspots before first contact. The last image in the bottom row was taken just before the Sun became covered with clouds during the last half of egress. The three central images of the middle row show second contact, mid annular eclipse as seen from Redding, CA, and third contact, respectively.
