Solar eclipse at midnight
On June 1st the moon passed in front of the sun at midnight. You couldn’t see it unless you live in the far North.
Several photographers near or above the Arctic Circle captured the exquisite and rare beauty.
“A rain shower threatened to spoil the show, but just before midnight the clouds parted and I got a fairly clear shot of the eclipse,” says Olsen. “I’m glad I did, because we won’t experience an eclipse like this again for 73 years.” (SpaceWeather.com)
