Solar Eclipse


The solar eclipse on Feb. 26, 1998 as recorded in my backyard at K3PGP NE USA.

The image appears slightly out of focus as I had to shoot through a slight cloud cover.

The silver color of the sun and some geometric disrtortion was caused by the aluminized filters used to reduce the intensity.
