The next photo shows the instant of totality (C2). The 3rd photo shows mid-eclipse. The 4th photo shows the end of the eclipse (C3). Note the changing shape of the shadow and the colors of the onset of the eclipse with its sunset colors. Also, Venus is below the sun and slightly to the left.” Thank you, Eliot!
