Total Solar Eclipse

The image below was taken aboard Holland America's Statendam. The sun entered totality at 2:10 pm on February 26, 1998. We were anchored just off the north coast of Curacao, Netherland Antilles.

Below the fully eclipsed sun, Jupiter is visible in the picture. Mercury is in the upper left corner. Venus, Mars, and Saturn were out of the picture. The inset at the upper right is the diamond ring seen at the onset of totality when the last rays of sunlight passed through gaps in the lunar mountains.
