My friend Dave Sommerfield was with me while we were hoping to see ANY of the eclipse, as I blogged about yesterday.  Both armed with nothing but our smartphones, we were probably pretty fortunate to get pictures as good as the ones we got.  But Dave had a bit of serendipity with one of his shots - check out the lens flare in the lower part of this picture.  You can't see the Moon "bite" out of the Sun where the Sun actually is in the sky, but in the lens flare... well - check it out:

And in Japan, one of my friends lives just outside Tokyo.  If I understand it correctly, that part of the world hasn't seen an eclipse since the 1800's, but I may be wrong on that count.  In any case, I spotted some of the eclipse as it occurred there yesterday via live internet feeds.  But my friend Shinji captured this excellent shot through the clouds.  He was disappointed that he didn't get a "perfect ring" but man... that sure is a great shot as far as I'm concerned!

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
