Solar eclipse in Calcutta







I woke up early today morning to be able to catch the (partial) solar eclipse visible from Calcutta. It was somewhat overcast so the eclipse was not visible for a while after it started.

The images were taken (from my roof) at 7 13 am, 7 25 am and 7 37 am respectively.

well worth the early rising?

Hi Koze, yes, I try to catch all special astral events - also once the final trajectory of a space lab before it disappeared into dark space. But the solar eclipse only brought to mind the spectacular total eclipse we had in September 1995.

Best
