Mongolian Expedtions’ solar eclipse camp at Khoton lake Mongolia, (Lat. 48° 38” 46” N, Long> 88° 18” 46” E, Elev. 2079 m). From this fantastic location our group, 27 avid eclipse chasers, and support staff of 19, had a breath taking view the eclipse. The sky was clear, however there was a strong wind, which required the use of a wind block to shelter the equipment. This image is one of 2,500 that were taken, which will be used to create a time-lapse movie of the eclipse.
