Another Solar Eclipse!

17 Jun

On June 10, 2021, Ottawa Canada woke up to an annular solar eclipse. I wasn’t sure that I’d even be able to view it given that it would be so low on the horizon and the day was forecast to be party cloudy. Happily, the clouds were thin and actually made the eclipse even more interesting!

Here is my favourite photo from the morning, taken with my iPhone 11 Pro attached to a Celestron NexStar 8SE telescope fitted with a solar filter. It reminds me of an alien gas giant being eclipsed by another large planet…But maybe that’s just because I watch too much science fiction 🙂

Here’s a video I took around the same time as the photo above.
