Persona Ecliptic
Colorado, on Sep 22, 2003

Got these Monday the 22nd at 8:20 AM in southern Colorado. Taken through a #8 welders glass. Pretty dramatic view of the 12 o'clock position I think. Large photo is raw no processing. Small is a cropped version.
These photos taken with welders lens show an Occulted Sun, with a large persona at the 12 o'clock position. Compare this to the photos from Italy, also an AM photo, showing a huge 12 o'clock persona. These positions are absolutely on the same place along the Ecliptic, where Virgo touches the Ecliptic just above the Sun.
