Anonymous, Eclipse over Boston 02/10/1959, United States
This is the way the eclipse of the sun appeared from a Northeast plane 15,500 feet over nearby Swamp-scott this morning. Bad weather from hurricane Gracie obscured the view from the ground but was seen by a group of Harvard astronomers viewed it from the plane. This shot was made as it reached it’s halfway point. Layer of clouds from the effect in the foreground.

One of the first photographs of the moon, taken in 1857 by John Dillwyn Llewelyn and his daughter Thereza. Llewelyn was an entrepreneur and one of the founders of the Royal Photographic Society. He and Thereza were both keen amateur astronomers and took a number of lunar photographs from the observatory Llewelyn had had built on his Penllergare estate in South Wales. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought many of his pioneering photographs to add to their collection.
