This isn't terribly sailing related, except that the pictures were taken over the lake that my boat was on.

Anyway, it was amazing! Not quite as cool as 1979 when my dad pulled me out of school so we could drive several hundred miles west to see a full eclipse, but a partial at sunset is pretty damn cool.

Set to this;


There is no dark side of the moon, really. As a matter of fact it's all dark....

Sweet! Thanks for sharing. I was hoping to get a look for myself but we had complete cloud cover all day... :mad:
Bummer!

An English guy stopped by and took a look through my filter while I was taking pictures. He said that several years ago he and his whole family travelled to see a total eclipse, but it was cloudy and they had to watch it on TV :(. I didn't catch what year that was, I don't know when the last total eclipse was visible in England.

Anyway, it was a gorgeous sight.

One of my neighbours had his telescope out when I was walking the dog. Clear sky here.
