The 1998 Total Solar Eclipse,
Guadeloupe, F.W.I.
On February 26th, 1998, the Sun eclipsed in the Caribbean, and Rebecca and I were on the island of Guadeloupe to see it. We watched it from the windward side of the island with Craig DeForest and a large group of his physicist buddies who were in town for a solar physics conference (what a coincidence!). Here are the images I captured of it, with a few of the snaps from the day...... (You can also look at photos of the rest of the trip).
(Click on the thumbnail image to view a full size version.)

Look at the movie that I created using all the eclipse images, shot at an interval of 10 minutes over the course of 2½ hours.
 
And so it begins......
 
Over half way
there now!

The magnificence
of Totality!
