Annular solar eclipse on Thursday 10 June 2021: —path of annularity will be pretty northerly but lots of locations will have a nice partial eclipse. People along the north coast of Lake Superior are in for a nice "ring of fire" sunrise.

Meanwhile here in Halifax we'll have a max of about 70% coverage a bit after sunrise to the north-northeast. That's not a good view for me at home (leafy); thinking of hauling the camera somewhere with a good view.

Turned out the backyard was just fine for some partial-eclipse-viewing. Time to watch a circle not be a circle for 2 hours.

It is finished. Do not displease me again or I may block the sun once more.

Cool crescent shadows on the wall cast by the trees at around max time.


NASA photog Bill Ingalls got this great DC sunrise shot from Arlington, VA:
