Location:
Sallatunturi, Finnish Lapland, ca. 35km north of Arctic Circle
Details:
Pictures taken on the top of Sallatunturi, altitude 476m. It was the first night to observe the midnight sun and than there was also the eclipse! Almost perfect circumstances with some clouds. The sun tipped the horizon at the moment that the moon was covering the sun for the maximum what could be seen from my observation point. With two beautiful 'cat eyes' just above the horizon as a result.
