Annular Eclipse Timelapse – Shot on 5/20/12

Matt Moses of, was able to capture the Annular Eclipse from his deck in San Francisco, California on May 20, 2012. An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line, but the size of the Moon is smaller than the Sun (source: wiki)

Matt was able to take 588 images and import the RAW files into Adobe After Effects CS6 and piece the still images together.

He stated, “The adjustments on the RAW images allowed me to resolve moon crater detail on the edge of the moon as well as sun spots – Very cool.”
