Solar Corona + Keck & Subaru

    Newer Older

    Here is an event older than the recent (May 20, 2012) Annular solar eclipse. This shot is from near the summit of Mauna Kea using a low quality digital camera (the best available at the time).

    The last eclipse visible from Mexico and Hawaii was in 1991.

    Yes, those are clouds below the observatories.

    And THIS IMAGE is a FORGERY, just like many of the "AnnularSolar Eclipse 2012" photos. Read about it and detecting other forgeries here

      Ok, I'm coming clean. When I published a previous "composite work" I stated I'd offer a free webinar to who ever can spot my next forgery. Now I'm revealing that this IS also a fake. For more details on spotting fakes, see my BLOG article.

      Nice reflections on those domes :)

      Thanks. I'm developing a dome of my own at the expense of my hair. ;-)
