The total solar eclipse 11-July-2010 in Argentina was not easy-to-catch, because the total phase appeared only 1 degree above the horizon and above the usually-cloudy Andes. To increase my possibilities, I hiked to a hill 400 meters above the lake Lago Argentino. With luck in weather I catched the phenomenon just over the mountains. I put myself into the photo to get a human touch. There was quite a strong wind during the eclipse which made me wish I had a better tripod.

A small group of three astronomers traveled halfway around the globe to reach beautiful Mangaia. Here are the images we shot through the clouds.

Physics professor Patricia Reiff of Rice University witnessed the eclipse from the deck of the Aranui 3 cruise ship just off the coast of Tahiti. She sent these pictures directly from the ship using her iPhone.
