Thanks, seeing it!
 
haha that's right it looks like "The Ring" but it is stunning!
 
I was going to say I thought Frodo melted that...
 
Beautiful. I'm sorry I missed it. Is there a way I could put that as a screen saver on my Android. I am absolutely tech illiterate. Thanks

Really amazing.
 
Just beautiful. We didn't see much of it here in Nashville, TN.
 
so.... COOL !!!! :) :) I HAVE NEVER SEEN 1 BEFORE EVER
 
Does this mean I'm gonna die in seven days?
 
Looks like it's true that the moon's orbit is getting farther away; this is the first eclipse I've seen where the actual surface of the son can be seen behind the moon...usually all that can be seen of the sun is its corona.
 
Waiting in Taos, NM. Looks like clouds might ruin it
 
how did you take the photo without blinding yourself?
 
Would make great album art work :-)
 
the same way a ton of little kids stare at the sun on a normal day, just deal with blindness later. that said, I need to get new glasses....
 
Wish I were on the west coast today
 
looks like a condom........................
 
Awesome timing on this shot. Just could not get a clear view from the Atlanta, GA area this evening, too many clouds and the sun was already too far down on the horizon. I am so jealous that you were able to get this shot, well done!
 
Have any "Heroes" gained or lossed power today? hehe
 
Everybody who saw the eclipse will die in seven days.
 
And nature makes an x-box halo refference
 
ECLIPSE!?! What the hell? Why do I miss all the good stuff?
 
You guys now that is not from the current eclipse right.....
 
It's not the current one you fools
 
Thank you very much for taking this very spectacular picture!!! :) =) ^^
 
+Shem Abel No it's just an annular eclipse. This is actually a more common eclipse than a total eclipse. However you are correct the moon is indeed moving away from the Earth at a rate of about 3.7 ~ 3.8 cm per year.

It will take about 1.4 billion years for the moon to move to a distance of about 24,000 km. At the same time the sun is getting bigger (as it's hydrogen fuel gets less and less). Thus it is hard to estimate exactly when the last eclipse will happen on Earth, but good guesses are anywhere between 900 million and 1.6 billion years.

I do want to point out, even though the moon is moving further away from the Earth, we will still have total eclipses for the next couple of hundred millenia. Three to four centimeters a year is really difficult to visualize when compared to between 362 to 405 thousand kilometers.
 
cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
