Solar Corona + Keck & Subaru
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.
