In honor of the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, let's see your best effort at eclipse shots. If you don't have a chance at seeing totality, please upload a partial eclipse shot. If you can't do that, then any shot of the sun, though not classic sunset views please. I only have partial eclipse shots from the past, using a solar filter, but am traveling 6 hours to a location to try to catch totality. Hoping for clear skies!

Partial eclipse:

Sun spots:

Solar transit of the International Space Station:

Sun dog:

Mercury transit:

Submissions will be closed on Thursday the 11th of April 2024 at 21:41:45 UTC
