Occulting Sun
Minnesota, on Sep 16, 2003

The first photo taken on Sept 13 at 4:00 PM is showing light penetration through a fairly dense cloudcover. Only an extremely intense light source occulting the Sun could penetrate an overcast sky. The second photo was taken at 2:00 PM today, with the Sun facing more in a southerly direction now. This photo was taken without a lens filter, showing the odd shape, due to the Occulting progression.
