solar eclipse in China
Des Loughney travelled to China to observe the total solar eclipse on 1st August 2008. This wide-angle shot gives an idea of what the scene looked like to the naked eye. Note Venus some distance top left of the sun, also the edge of the lunar shadow at the bottom left. The insert shows the sun and Mercury threefold enlarged. See also Des' article.
