Three times we had the opportunity to watch a total eclipse of the Sun:
On August 11, 1999 the highly anticipated eclipse in Europe was a disappointment for many people because of thick clouds and rain. But not for us! Thin clouds in our area resulted in an amazing sight, and pictures, of the shadow of the Moon, the umbra.
On March 29, 2006, we had clear skies in Turkey during the eclipse. A timelapse still had to be done with Kodachrome slide film!
Clear skies again on August 21, 2017 during the Great American Eclipse. Now we had the opportunity to record the sound and make a beautiful timelapse.
