Ah, annular. I was thinking that someplace half way around the world was getting a solar eclipse annually and I was thinking that is just so unfair.

Lovely short. He also caught a green flash during the same eclipse, and has some other beautiful stuff on his website.

That's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

This is beautiful. I've never managed to get my shit together to be able to watch an eclipse without scorching my retinas; I've gotta get October 23, 2014 on my calendar.

I've been lucky enough to have moved to Australia (from the US), and one of the best mornings I've had since landing here was driving three hours into the Pilbara sunrise in a mine-outfitted Land Cruiser to the airport in Newman, WA. I've spent a lot of time in the US southwest, and in the Utah national parks, but damned if there's not something really special about an hour alone on a two-lane strip in the middle of the Outback.

I should also note that hearing Men at Work's "Land Down Under" while actually Down Under is extra special too.
