Jerr's got it. The shadow overtaking us and receding into the distance. The clouds in the foreground are now in sunlight, and there is also sunlight over the horizon...

Nope Pinky, something a bit more modern than that, and in one bit

And here it is from a different angle.

Solar Eclipse

Hey Stallie

Did you log the eclipse as night ??

I could have done my 3 circuits in the eclipse to keep currency!

Cheers

Dreamer..? Or..?

55 and 50 years ago as a lad, I used to look up at my mountain, see the wedgetail eagles soaring in the up-currents and wish I was up there with them..


from another angle..


yesterday




Today, on the way home, we diverted a little, and circled it again..





and yes, we did fly level with a solitary circling eagle for a while..
