My 18th Solar Eclipse Expedition My second successfully-observed Annular Eclipse!
I decided only a week before to chase this eclipse! Was saving my dimes for the Total Eclipse in Australia later in the year. And even though I do nothing but globe-trot to exotic locales – it does get expensive! But I made it happen. And I was so richly rewarded for doing so. The documentary film that come out of this expedition is worth every penny it cost me.
Part 2: The Grand Canyon
Part 3: Sedona
Part 4: Annular Eclipse
We chose a very specific GPS location as our observing site this time. Just inside the southern limit of the eclipse path, we are able to see certain phenomenon not visible from the centre line. These ‘Baily’s Beads’ occur only when the edge of the Moon grazes the edge of the Sun.
Part 5: Annular Eclipse
Tired of the razor-thin superficiality of your existence? All done with reality shows and fatty foods? Come eclipse chasing with me. See where we are going next.
