and a solargraph of the day…

eclipse-may-20-back.jpg

I made a day-long solargraph on eclipse day.

As you can see, the Sun faded during maximum eclipse just before sunset.

This photo was made with a pinhole camera mounted on a fence post in my back yard that was loaded with ISO 4 black and white photo paper.

There were a few clouds, and the breaks in the solar track are due to clouds and not the Sun going into eclipse.

It’s Showtime!

The May 20 annular Eclipse did NOT disappoint!  My friends Juan Martinez of Fort Worth, Texas and Tom OHarra of San Antonio, Texas are shown projecting the eclipsed Sun onto a map of the eclipse path.  It was a great day in Albuquerque!
