Photos of today’s eclipse over Indonesia
Photographers in the EarthSky community captured the eclipse! Thank you to all who contributed photos.
View larger. | Justin Ng at Amazing City Beach Resort in Palu, Indonesia captured this photo of the March 9, 2016 total eclipse of the sun. He captured what is one of the most famous of all eclipse phenomena: the legendary diamond ring effect
. It happens twice in a total eclipse … in the final moments before totality, and just as totality ends. You can also see a flare from the sun, on its lefthand limb. Beautiful, Justin! Thank you for sharing with Earthsky.

The community website Slooh.com caught the March 9, 2016 eclipse from Indonesia. Great job by Tricia Ennis and the team!
Ingo Steller in Phuket, Thailand captured the partial eclipse and said: “By 7:15 a.m., the sunrise was being blocked by the mountain, and then the sun rose above the mountain and it was blocked by a cloud. Finally, at 7:20 a.m., the cloud thinned enough to see the sun. It was brilliant … Meanwhile none of the people on the beach had any idea what was happening and walkers were looking up and then at me as though I was nuts photographing the sun.”
A Kannan in Singapore caught the partial phases, too. He wrote: “The partial solar eclipse was observed in Singapore skies this morning covering about 85% of the sun from Earth.”
Jordan Lye Photography in Penang, Malaysia caught the partial phases of the eclipse. He wrote: “Where the sun just started to rise from the hill behind.”
It was a partial solar eclipse sunset from the Big Island of Hawaii on March 8, 2016, said Chris Tinker. Thanks, Chris!
