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.
