Sun Goes Dark
Photographer David Yu took this eclipse shot from San Francisco on May 20.
An odd camera artifact turns the eclipse over San Francisco into a triple crescent sun.
Behind the Maple Leaves
Photographer Elon Gane snapped this photo on May 20, during the annular solar eclipse, from El Dorado Springs, Mo. "We had pretty good visibility here, some clouds did block some of it at first, but as the eclipse progressed they were not a problem," Gane told LiveScience.
"Earlier, Clouds were threat[en]ing to block it! but they cleared out later :-)," photographer Elon Gane wrote on his Flickr site of this eerily beautiful photo take in El Dorado Springs, Mo.
A loosely-woven blanket held up at Folsom Stadium in Boulder, Colo. provides a pinhole effect. A close look at the shadows reveals hundreds of little crescent shapes, shadows cast by the eclipsing sun.
