Myself and a friend of mine decided to go out and photograph the solar eclipse of the midnight sun. One 45 minute hike later, we reached the mountaintop and rigged up the cameras. The "show" went on from 22:40 to 00:20. And it was a spectacular show to say the least. 1128 RAW images later, we went hiked back down. I´m hoping to put together a Time lapse of the whole thing later today. Gear used: Canon 7D, EF 70-200 2.8L, TC-80n3 shutter-release.

Some images of the midnight sun eclipse last night in Tromsø / Northern Norway. I was happy I stayed in Tromsø, as I had only some clouds over the whole time of the eclipse. The image with the 'Hurtigruten'-boat is a sandwich of two images (to handle the extreme contrast). Last image is taken with a solar filter.

The partial solar eclipse during the night 01./02. June 2011 could be observed under perfect conditions from the Levi mountain in Lapland, Finland. The lunar limb was decorated by green lines, occurring as green flashes when the sun goes up or down. But during this midnight eclipse the sun continuously moved to the right.
