The Partial Solar Eclipse of May 20, 2012


This solar eclipse was annular along a path that included northern Arizona, but I photographed it from Chandler where it was only partial. I was in the right place at the right time to get this telephoto shot of the partially eclipsed sun just before it set behind the TV towers on Phoenix's South Mountain.
