    Title or Location: Total Solar Eclipse with Baily's Beads, photo taken in Ada, Ohio, USA on April 8, 2024
    My wife was scheduled to do a week-long workshop at University of Michigan from April 1 to 5. I knew that there would be a total solar eclipse on Arpil 8, 2024 and that Ohio would be in its path. So I went with my wife to Ann Arbor, Michigan and drove over to Ada, Ohio in the morning of April 8. I chose Ada because it was in the middle of the solar eclipse and the totality would last the longest there for 3 minutes and 56 seconds. However, the weather forecast was cloudy from 1:00 pm to 5:00pm t

    This was my first attempt at astrophotography in Brisbane and was a trial shot more than anything. I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I
