Partial Solar Eclipse of November 3 2013 by Radical Retinoscopy, on Flickr

The partial hybrid solar eclipse of November 3, 2013 was photographed through intermittent cloud cover over a wheat field in Lancaster, PA. I was anxiously awaiting a break in the cloud cover to get a clear shot; suddenly, about fifteen minutes from the conclusion, a small clearing made the partial eclipse visible. The colors of the clouds and sunrise made this a morning I will not forget!

The shadow is racing towards the African mainland. It's simply awesome to see the shadow sweep the earth!

Caught the eclipse at sunrise from Myrtle Beach, SC. Drippy sun. Actually the drip is an inferior mirage caused by vertical temperature gradients out at sea.

November 3, 2013 Total Solar Eclipse
http://www.alsonwongastro.com

The path of the November 3, 2013 hybrid solar eclipse crossed land over Africa. A hybrid solar eclipse is total over part of the eclipse track and annular at the beginning and end of the eclipse track. This image of the corona was created from five separate exposures taken from Pokwero Village, Uganda. The symmetrical appearance of the corona is typical of its appearance near solar maximum.

Hi everyone, this is my first post here, so I hope I'm doing it correctly. I'd like to submit the following pictures to the APOD.

I've been thinking about traveling to see today's solar eclipse for about a year. How often can we see an eclipse ongoing at sunrise? This might be a once in a lifetime event, and I did not want to miss it. So I traveled to Raleigh, NC 2 days before the eclipse, so that I could drive to anywhere on the East cost where the weather would be good. The weather forecast was pretty for Cape Hatteras, and this was my favorite spot, so I went there. The last 12 hours were definitely a nails biting experience, hopping that the clouds would leave soon enough and leave a clear Eastern horizon.
At 6.26am, the sunrise was blocked by a layer of clouds, but after a couple of minutes, the sun emerged from the clouds and its light was still filtered enough to take pictures without a filter. The two or three minutes during which the eclipse was visible without a filter went by in a flash, but they will stay in my memory for ever.

In the foreground, Frisco's fishing pier (badly damaged by hurricane Earl in 2010) gives a post-apocalyptic atmosphere to the pictures. However, the seagulls did not seem to be much impressed by the spectacle.

I've also noticed, from ~40 to 20 minutes before the sunrise, a very long shadow (kind of the same as high-altitude clouds or high mountain). Could this be the shadow of the eclipse projected in the atmosphere? It seems to me it lasted way too long (and occurred way too long before sunrise) to be caused by some high altitude clouds.
I've included 4 images below:

Thank you for your consideration.

How wonderfully apocalyptic, Jean-Francois.

I traveled by bus to Gulu, Uganda, one day before the total solar eclipse. After having booked a room in a hotel, I walked the streets searching for a good viewing point for the totality. A local young woman (university student Irene) asked if I was lost (I wasn't). Immediately it started to rain heavily (it's the rain season), so we continued chatting under a nearby roof waiting the rain to stop. This was the start of our friendship that ended in the attached eclipse photo, where Irene is carrying two plates of local oranges in a typical African style.

A bit more info just for fun:
  • We bought 43 oranges from the local market place (2 US dollars) and that was just perfect amount for two plates.
  • We started observing the partial phase with a crowd of enthusiastic village youngsters. As I only had a single pair of filtered "eclipse glasses", they used smoked glass to view the eclipse -- a method that is discouraged for safety reasons, but this time worth it for educational reasons.
  • For the totality, we got a permission to use the flat grass field of an orphanage home. The nurses and staff were watching the eclipse with us with a great joy.
  • The eclipse was very short = 16 seconds in a 4-minute film that shows how the photo was taken. Unfortunately I have not been able to download it into youtube due to slow internet speed in Uganda.
  • As a scientific point of view, I saw two clear diamonds in the ring, when the totality started. One diamond appeared in the usual position (in the center of the fading crescent) and the other was about 20 degrees to the left of the first one. It would be great if somebody could verify this?
  • I heard afterwards that Irene's grandfather did not see the eclipse because he was inside watching TV. :)

PS. Ah, I got the "behind the scenes" film uploaded [youtube link].
