Partial solar eclipse - 25.10.2022 at 12.12 - 25.10.2022 at 13.08 Rovaniemi Observation number 110370

Visibility III / V

Sari Pietikäinen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi

Well yeah. We had some clouds in Rovaniemi, but I nevertheless set out with hope to shoot... There seemed to be some initial difficulties with focusing the camera, when the subject was so strongly behind the clouds. The first picture was taken at 12:13, as soon as the sun was visible for a long enough time that I got the settings and focus more or less right. I took the first pictures with a filter, but soon I gave it up and just shot through the clouds. There wasn't much to describe. 13:04, so around the time of the second picture there was a longer translucent moment in the clouds, and the last observation of the sun was 13:08. That is, until the maximum phase, I did not see the eclipse, and I persistently waited until the end of the eclipse, but there was nothing more to see.
It was still nice to see even a glimpse of the eclipse. Now to the sauna to warm up...

Sieltähän se kuitenkin kuultaa pilvien läpi.  Parempi kuin täällä etelärannikolla.
