New Windsor, Maryland (USA)
A sunset partial solar eclipse was viewed from MTO on October 23, 2014. Although the horizon was cloudy, fleeting glimpses (such as this one) of the sun with its right-hand edge dented from the occulting lunar disk, were visible between breaks in the clouds and trees. A sheet of welder's glass was dangled in front of a telephoto lens in this image.
