I was so sad to learn I had missed it. But there’s been no shortage of people across the planet who not only witnessed it but managed to capture the whole thing on video. And here is one of the better videos of this recurring, but no less spectacular, celestial event. Compiled by Astrophotographer Ted Judah, the video shows his views of the May 20th, 2012 annular solar eclipse from Sundial Bridge in Redding, California.
Not only was he able to shoot the whole thing for a retrospective, the guy was also kind enough to let passersby use his telescope so he could share his love of astronomy with them. And the production value of the video itself is really awesome and includes music, fast-framing, and several views of the eclipse as it happened. But don’t take my word for it, check it out!
