Greek Eclipse
Nothing there is beyond hope,
nothing that can be sworn impossible,
nothing wonderful, since Zeus, father of the Olympians, made night from mid-day,
hiding the light of the shining Sun, and sore fear came upon men.
                                                       Archilochus, poet of ancient Greece

The folks on this cruise decided to share pictures that they took throughout the trip.   Steve Evans did the heavy lifting, getting it organized.

Here are a few of the eclipse. 
I have tried to leave the pictures just as they were presented to the group other than cropping and adjusting to a consistent size. 
I hope that you enjoy them.
If you are one of the contributors and would like to include a comment on your technique, equipment, or the trip please send me e-mail and I will add it to the page.

Robert Howe captured this image.

John King created this artistic composite showing the sequence we saw before, during and after totality.

Jim Lehman caught first and fourth contacts as well as a moment before second and a moment after third.

Here is a picture by Carol Levine

Richard Quinnell added this shot.

One by Mike Richardson.

And my picture of the final double diamond ring just as the sun emerged from behind the moon. 
The break was caused by a lunar mountain blocking a bit of the "diamond" at the end of totality.

My sincere thanks to those who shared their pictures on this trip. 

The NASA web site has technical details of the eclipse.
A detail of one of the images from their site shows the path of the eclipse where we were near the island of Crete.
