Astrophotography by Mario Cogo

Solar Eclipse


While in some locations like Iceland, Greenland and Scotland this eclipse was annular, on the morning of 31 May 2003 a partial eclipse of the Sun was visible from middle Europe. This image show the eclipsed Sun through the clouds and seagull. Unfortunately the eclipse was not visible for the first minutes due to some fog on the horizon.
