Wish I had a tele converter to play with!...

Just to be a stickler about a fine point... I think that if there was a solar eclpise like you are suggesting in the 2 extra photos... then the moon would be round. The special shape of the moon in the pic is made by the sun being somewhere behind our left shoulder. That would put the sun in 2 places! hmmmmm.....



Maybe you could get your astronomy friends a little drunk then give them the "Eclipse" pictures and wait to see if they notice that there were "theoretically" two suns!........of course listenning to drunk astronomers might be better done if you were drunk too! They won´t make any sense anyway!

Black holes..... speed of light.... Bah Humbug!

The world IS still flat!.... Don´t travel past New Jersey or you might fall off!

I was just goofing off in photoshop not really trying for a solar eclipse effect, just picked my favorites, and posted.

Im not sure about the 2 sun theory,but the dark and light sections are reversed, what was dark is now light and the lighter section is now the darker portion of the moon. No one seemed to notice, or mention that part which is what i thought was kind of interesting.

My friends wouldnt have a clue about a2 sun effect sober, and if they were drunk theyd probably say "hey howd you get a picture of earth?" hah.

Thank you for your input, and thank you everyone for responses.

Best regards,

Mag

gmosc is right. The first and last pix are nice, but the other 2 would have the same effect on an astronomer as a picture of a pine tree with blue pine needles would have on a botanist. Even with the correct full moon, I don't think you would see the detail and the bright corona together

<and yes, I'm now expecting someone to post their PS version of a navy-blue pine tree>
