What an unforgetable moment! Despite some clouds at moments, the Sun annular eclipse was perfectly visible form Denia (in Spain). It was so exciting. Notice in the last picture a pale prominence at the lower left, emerging from behind the Moon disk, just before the annular phase.

Photo details: Canon A95 on a Coronado PST, 100 ASA, 1/500 s.
