Photo of the Week for February 7, 2014

Many Canadians travel to enjoy their hobbies though when it comes to dedication and distance, amateur astronomers just might take the cake. Total solar eclipses are so rare that some enthusiasts will travel to the other side of the world just to stand in the (absence of) light of a total solar eclipse. Lukas Gornisiewicz flew from Edmonton, Alberta, to Uganda to spend 18 seconds in the Moon’s shadow on November 3, 2013. Lukas remarks that this was his sixth total solar eclipse and by far his favourite. He took this image of totality using a Canon 60D with a 100-400mm f/5.6 lens and 2× teleconverter. He took this 1/2660-second image at ISO 400.
