Total Solar Eclipse - 11 July 2010

Now with 2 days to go before the eclipse, anxiety was really building. This view is from the yard off the dining area of the Altiplanico Hotel, where we were to do our eclipse observing. This view includes the southern circumpolar sky. If you look very closely between the clouds, you can see the small and large Magellanic clouds briefly.

Like the previous video, this one shows only a few hours of the sky because showers interrupted the photo session.
