These first eight images are from the Solar Eclipse that occurred on May 20, 2012. I was at a Jazz concert in Newport Beach and was able to get these images. The black background images are when the Sun was uncovered and required 11 stops of neutral density filtration and 1/8000 sec shutter speeds. The cloudy images are just that, cloud cover made the eclipse visible to the naked eye. Unfortunately, the clouds eventually blocked out the entire eclipse so we did not see the rest of it.
