Title:
Partial Solar Eclipse

Description:
I had been awaiting this opportunity for well over a year as I have never seen anything like it. We had a partial solar eclipse but unfortunately here in Anchorage there were clouds as far as I could see covering the sun. I took a drive out to Point Woronzof and although there were clouds there too, I was lucky enough to catch this very tiny glimpse of the partial eclipse. This was taken through my telescope using a solar filter; one of the only ways to capture this moment.
