Occulted Sun
Australia, on Sep 18, 2003

Here are two photos, which were done on Sept 18 with a canon MV430i camcorder. I am using a dark filter to block as much of the Sun as possible. Its a problem getting pictures as the sky is constantly overcast, blocking the Sun, or dry gale winds blowing every week. In Melbourne, Australia.
These are very interesting! In the first, there is a reddish cast on the lefthand side, and in the second, clearly a second light source on the left hand side! Nancy
