The eclipse started out with the sun visible, but with
clouds clearly drifting by as you can see in the
eclipse time-lapse sequence.
But luck was with us for the most important phase of the eclipse.
As we approached totality, the clouds thinned and we ended up
viewing totality in a hole in the clouds! There was still a fair
haze layer, making it impossible to shoot the outer corona, so I
elected to concentrate on the inner corona and chromosphere for my
shots. Here, however, we were unlucky in that there were only small
prominences at the sun's edge. The haze layer also scattered enough
light to interfere with photographing pinhole images.
But overall, we consider it a success! We fared much better than some
other groups which were clouded out and even rained on.
