Auckland, New Zealand

Caption: I had completely forgotten about today's eclipse and went in to Newmarket for coffee with friends. Outside the café there were staff and customers looking skyward. Naturally, I did the same thing. And was SO thankful that I had taken my camera with me to coffee.

HI,
Always check World View photos. They're so uplifting and/or interesting. So glad to see another of your eclipse photos sitting at #1.

I plan to forward my family & friends these photos. (Kiwis in Mt. Maunganui among the friends.) It will be Thanksgiving soon in the USA, and I am thankful for www.wunderground.com Hope to upload some photos one of these days.

I find great pleasure and relaxation looking at photos on this website. Great information on weather as well.

Thank you for your contributions.

Cheers!
Eileen

Quoting fotomacc:
With the next eclipse here not until 2028 this could well be my last. And it is the only solar one that I have managed to photograph.

GLAD you caught it John. I could kick myself for not trying to shoot our last eclipse AND it was a sunset one!

Thanks everyone, and thanks Approvers for making the sky blue.

It would have been great to be in Cairns.
