Solar Eclipse – June 2021


The partial solar eclipse had already started at sunrise on June 10, 2021. In addition, the clouds were hiding the start of the event. As soon as the clouds began to dissipate to let us glimpse the eclipse, here is what we were able to photograph. The Moon was looming in front of the Sun but missing the center a little, passing a little above. The horn effect was striking!
