This is the path of the 1963 solar eclipse. We drove to Lac-à-la-Tortue near Grand-Mère Québec.
This is me with my 500 mm lens. Right now it has a heavy filter for the partial phases.
We set up in a field. My colleagues were Peter Ernst and Keith Eastwood
This is a partial image at the half way point.
Pinholes in leaves create images of the partially eclipese sun.
The sun is almost, but not completely covered.
It's fully eclipsed. The longer exposures show more of the outer atmosphere of the sun.
We have 55 seconds to vary the exposure and observe what the birds and bees are doing with this sudden darkness.
A prominance is becoming visible at the 3:00 o'clock position
This was the minimal exposure and it clearly shows several prominences.
Its over and bursting out with full brilliance.
