Who bit in the cookie or is it Pacman?

No, it’s Solar eclipse 2021 in the middle of Germany!

This time with good weather and perfect sight, compared to 2015 or 1999. Unfortunately, it’s only a partial eclipse like in 2015.

My first solar eclipse was in 1999 when the moon covered the whole sun and only left a small bright ring. It took place in August, but the weather conditions were not good. But, it was still impressive. It became noticeable colder and darker and birds stopped singing.

This time, we only had a small coverage as you can see in the image. It’s taken at the moment when the eclipse was at its maximum. Thus, the effects were not noticeable. Without a special solar filter, this eclipse was not noticeable at all.

Btw. I’m currently running a raffle. You can win a license of Excire Foto. Check it out!

Take care!

solar eclipse 2015

dsc_6899_wWow – although this wasn’t my first solar eclipse, it was very impressive.

My first solar eclipse was in 1999, when the moon covered the whole sun and only left a small bright ring. It took place in August, but the weather conditions were not good. But, it was still impressive. It became noticeable colder and darker and birds stopped singing.

This time, we only have had a coverage of about 80%. Thus, the effects were less dramatically, but still noticeable. Although we have hat beautiful clear and sunny days this week, yesterday began with fog and the whole day there was a gray structureless sky. Today the same 😦

Although we have had this bad weather, I was lucky enough to get a short view on the sun at the right time. Here in my area the eclipsing process started a 9:30 and lasted until 11:48. At 10:37 the maximum was hit. But, until 10:30 it was impossible to see anything from the sun over the clouds. Than it happened for about 10 minutes the clouds became thinner, so that it was possible the see the sun through the clouds. Though, it was impressive enough.
