Eclipse Madrid


A walk in the park seemed like a perfect idea to many
enjoying a
sunny October morning in Madrid, Spain.

Of course, on October 3rd an added attraction was the Moon - seen
in dramatic silhouette
during an annular
solar eclipse.

This multiple
exposure sequence follows the progress of
the eclipse from Madrid's monument to King
Alfonso XII
in the pleasant
del Buen Retiro

The Sun rises at the left and moves up and to the right in
the picture, with the ring-like annular phase near
picture center.

While a partial eclipse was visible over a wide area including
Europe, Africa and western Asia, the
central line of the
shadow track crossed Madrid.

Sun watchers in the capital city basked in an
annular eclipse
phase lasting about four minutes.
