Annular from south/sunrise limit

Perfectly clear view of the rising sun in full annular eclipse. I was intentionally located at one of the extremities of the path.

Very cool Geoff and I can see why you located at this point. A great demonstration of the effects of refraction.

Awesome images Geoff! Best I've seen from this eclipse I think! The refraction effect in the second one is amazing.

Cheers,
Stephen

Thanks everyone! Was certainly a unique opportunity.

Love the half disc...
That's actually the *full* disc! The lower portion of the Sun has been refracted up, essentially making a very squashed image. If you look carefully around the edges, you can see that it does not continue down behind the horizon.

Terrific shots Geoff. Where was this?

It looks like you went to great trouble to catch these. Well done on your hard work.
