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.


If you prefer your solar sequences in a line rather than a GIF, I have made this:
