About this image

I had hoped to dust down my H-Alpha 'scope for this eclipse but with three levels of cloud, all moving at different rates, I decided the best course of action was to try and capture some atmospheric shots. Some science was done though: I can confirm that Earth definitely has an atmosphere as well as lots of weather!
