The shadow of the Moon sweeping over Patagonia in southern Argentina plunges the steppe east of El Calafate into darkness just before sunset on 11 July 2010. The sharp delineation of the Moon's umbra in the sky stunned everyone. Pictures taken with compact camera at various zoom settings.

Our group flew to this remote atoll (consisting of a coral reef surrounding a lagoon) about 550 miles east of Tahiti. The weather was perfect and the seeing was superb. The local people gave us a warm welcome with Polynesian dances. Photo details: Canon 7D with Takahashi FSQ-106ED, 400 ISO.
