Occulted Sun
France, on Sep 5, 2003

I have returned and I am sending you these pictures taken during my vacation in Chamonix, France, weather allowing. The first only a sunrise behind the mountain.
Notice that the Sun in the sunrise photo is occulted at 10 o'clock, a dent in the Sun! This is the point where the Sun in the second phtoos is bulging.
