Coastal residents were lucky to see solar eclipse

Namibians were treated to a rare sight on Sunday, when the first solar eclipse of the year was observable from all corners of the country. Coastal residents were especially lucky to see the spectacle, as residents in many other parts of the country had their view obstructed by cloud cover. The annular eclipse crossed the South Pacific Ocean, South America and the South Atlantic Ocean before being witnessed in Africa. The greatest eclipse was midway over the continents though when the moon covered more than 99% of the sun. The eclipse were at its peak late in the afternoon in Namibia. The photo was taken in Swakopmund by Xenia Ivanoff-Erb with a Canon6D, a 400mm lens using a 10xND Filter, which is actually black glass.
