|itsislandtime > St. Croix > Solar Eclipse at Sunset|
Apr 15, 2005, 11:08
After a day of fun in the sun, including some beach going, we settled in at a good viewing place near the center of the island and waited for the big event. The clouds, however, seemed to have other plans. A large stationary cloud completely blocked the sun. I kept watch, hoping at least to see a colorful fringe around the cloud as the eclipse took place.
Suddenly, at about 6:17 PM the sky became bright just below the clouds. We were then treated to the eclipse as the sun set over the next 5 minutes.
The photos below were taken with a Canon PowerShot S1 IS, with the zoom set at 12X.
