Timelapse Shows the Blazing Beauty of a ‘Ring of Fire’ Eclipse

Images and videos are still coming in from last week’s spectacular annular eclipse of the Sun, seen across Australia and the southern Pacific region on May 10, 2013. This gorgeous timelapse by Colin Legg captures the eclipse from 3 locations in the Pilbara, Western Australia where the Sun was rising at the time of the event. “If you ever get to see an annular eclipse, I recommend going to the path limits (sunset or sunrise),” Legg said on Vimeo. “All sorts of weird things happen to the Sun, right on the horizon.”

  1. Thanks Nancy! I’ve been watching sun spots pretty regularly since I made a solar projection viewer on an old refractor I have. This has kindled a new found interest for me aka Mr. SOL! Daytime astronomy vs. night time astronomy… it’s all good!
