We missed this one - it didn't start until 0843 local time here, about two hours after sunrise. :(

Nice photo, though!

Thanks.
Hey, I've just had a thought: the moon travels at 2,288 miles per hour and my camera caught that alright. How come it has such a problem with those "slow" motorbikes at a paltry 100-150 miles per hour? :lol:.

Are you sure it was an eclipse in that shot, and not red shift from the Doppler effect? :lol:

Yes we saw it on our way back from dinner, in town. I then took Jess, and my camera, for a walk up to the headland, it was huge and so red/orange, and quite awesome to see. Of course on the photos it's just a pin prick :roll:

Fantastic shot Alan :D
