About this image

I had four cameras running during the eclipse. This is a frame grab from a Panasonic video camera. We had thin cloud at 2nd contact which cleared after around 30s but this gave a lovely halo effect. There are even faint shadow bands projected onto the clouds. The bands are parallel to the thin crescent and are faint on this image but much more prominent on the video where they can be seen moving.
