I took these images of the solar eclipse from Pehuajo, a small city 370 kilometers southwest of Buenos Aires. It was a partial eclipse, with the moon covering 54% of solar diameter.

11th July was my birthday and this was the second (and last) eclipse on my birthday in my lifetime. These images were taken from Hao Atoll,French Polynesia. I used my trusty vintage 1975 400mm telephoto with a Canon 300D. Images of the chromosphere just after 2nd contact, inner corona and prominences mid eclipse and the 3rd contact diamond ring. We had very thin cloud and a pesky thicker patch just at the end. Shadow bands were visible on the sand just after 3rd contact.

more images: from Ledoux Philippe of Marokau, Tuamotu archipelago, french Polynesia; from Pierre Arpin of Hao atoll airport in French Polynesia
