Annular Solar Eclipse Photo


This is the annular solar eclipse of May 30, 1984. It is just barely annular, and is therefore sometimes described as "beaded", for obvious reasons.

This photo was taken by Larry Carr, a former Emory University Physics Department professor, on Emory's main quadrangle.
