I got some lousy pictures with my camera and a pair of observation glasses (talk about amateur astronomy biggrin.gif tongue.gif )
I'll try to post them later today, we got about 92% coverage in Crete.

Envisat sees the eclipse's shadow over Africa

An unsual view of the eclipse from space as Envisat's MERIS captures the
totality path slicing through northwestern Nigeria on 29 March 2006.

"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853

Borek:

Nice images - I was struck on the day by how few (zero!) sunspots there were, leading to few prominences.

Very good. I am impressed. What film? exposure? filter?

EDIT: Oops I see the EOS 20D is digital, so no film.

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

Does anyone have the image of the total solar eclipse of March 7, 1970 as
shown from space in the August, 1970 issue of National Geographic Magazine?

Were they the first ones of their kind?

Some more eclipse images from space:

All shots are unfiltered; pic 2 (large corona shot) is ISO 400, f/4.5, 1/60. Can't recall other shots and I'm at work now, so I can't see EXIF.
I am quite happy with the pictures considering I wanted to see eclipse with my own eyes in the first place, and only then, if conditions allow, snap some pics. Also 200 mm lens is hardly sufficient.
On 1999 eclipse I made an eclipse movie instead of still photography.

The Crown of the Sun

Credit & Copyright: Koen van Gorp

Explanation: During a total solar eclipse, the Sun's extensive outer atmosphere or corona is an awesome and inspirational sight. The subtle shades and shimmering features of the corona that engage the eye span a brightness range of over 10,000 to 1, making them notoriously difficult to capture in a single picture. But this composite of 33 digital images ranging in exposure time from 1/8000 to 1/5 second comes very close to revealing the crown of the Sun in all its glory. The telescopic views were recorded from Side, Turkey during the March 29 solar eclipse, a geocentric celestial event that was widely seen under nearly ideal conditions. The composite also captures a pinkish prominence extending just beyond the upper edge of the eclipsed sun.

There's a video of the eclipse on the web that shows the complete time span of the total phase:
http://www.spider50.de/ (the links top left)

Sven Henning recorded it on a hill (Arap Dagi, 183m) close to Antalya (Turkey). If your connection speed allows it remotely, the 50MB mpeg video is really amazing and much better than the small versions! Especially on the hill they "could watch" the coming and going of the deepest shadow.
