The eclipse started at dawn. Because of a sea mist the early stages were missed, however photography was made much easier.Several flocks of birds passed by before this frame was captured.
Wales. UK August 1993
Standard lens on a Cosina 35mm SLR
This was an unexpected bonus observed whilst spending a pleasant summers evening tracking down planetary nebula and other 'faint fuzzies' that deep sky observers love so much. At first we thought it was just light pollution, but the display slowly evolved into columns of light marching along the horizon and wonderful reds and yellows, all clearly seen in this picture.
