The Lone Eagle – Annular Solar Eclipse

In addition to the alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth, in the Annular Solar Eclipse the apparent diameter of the Moon is smaller than the apparent diameter of the Sun, showing only the circle of sunlight around the Moon, also known as the circle of fire.

On October 14, 2023, in the interior of Northeast Brazil, in the small town of Carna├║ba dos Dantas, in the center of the line of totality, I captured this beautiful record of the ring solar eclipse, as per the sequence above. During the partial capture, beyond the clouds, an eagle appeared, probably a Caracara Plancus, creating a beautiful scene with the eclipse, clouds and sunspots.
