Totality in Libya 2006 – thanks to the keen eye of Canadian astro-photographer Alan Dyer.

It’s hard to say what makes the best eclipse photographs. The events are so incredibly dynamic, emotional and high contrast in nature that any favourite images are completely subjective. But in a sense, that’s why it’s so cool. The experience simply can’t be captured and put away for later. But one thing is certain: some images come closer than others in doing just that. And this is one of them. As a veteran of 18 solar eclipses – and a consumer of tens of thousands of eclipse images – I can say that the truth and the excitement contained in this shot by Alan Dyer is rare. And it’s one of my all-time faves.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed we all get photo opportunities like this in November.

Here are my plans for the next total eclipse of the sun.
