    Description

    Another eclipse photo from last night.

    Well over 100 astrophysics students took part in the event with over twelve scopes in use. The evening started out mostly cloudy with clearing skies on the Mira Costa campus and it was quite breezy. The classes lasted a heartly 3 1/2 hours and watched until totality ended.

    This shot was taken at 9:21pm with numerous stars of Cancer in the background (7th mag orange-red double star nearing the eastern limb to be occulted a few minutes later).

    Many more images to be processed!
