In case you missed the annual eclipse this morning, here's a photo of it over Lake Michigan.Today's annular eclipse was captured by many EarthSky friends and the photos keep coming in! Here's one of the partial eclipse as the sun is rising over Lake Michigan, captured by Chirag Bachani, who said: "The sun looked as if a bite was taken out of it as it rose over Lake Michigan. The sky glowed red as the crescent sun rose over the horizon. This surreal sight is produced by the moon covering a portion of the sun as seen from Earth. As the sun lifted above the lake, atmospheric refraction distorted the sun’s bottom half and creates a small inverse image of the sun directly beneath it." Thank you, Chirag!
