Pagan Eye: Solar Eclipse
The amazing photo above shows last Sunday's solar eclipse. It was taken by astronomer James C Wallace II, who has previously shot loads of lovely photos of the moon, planets and sun and kindly allowed me to post them on my blog.
James said about his eclipse photo: "This was taken about 8 minutes before horizon contact. It looks black and white because of the cloud cover and solar filter."
As well as being a great photographer and astronomer, James has written several novels set in the fictional world of Oz. His latest book is The Ozian Adventure of Pickleless and Blu: 4
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures.
If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to email@example.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
