    Partial Solar Eclipse


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Amature astronomy photographer mrfigz70 says he has never seen an eclipse in real life before. 'At first I tried to take a picture of it with my Canon, but then I realized that the sun was to bright. So I added my homemade solar filter to the lens. When I looked through the view finder I was amazed,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    My name is Luis Figueroa and I am an ameture astronomer/photographer. On Sunday November 3, 2013 got out my house at 5Am to capture the Partial Solar Eclipse using my Canon EOS 60D with a solar filter. I captured the eclipse in with my camera until it disappeared in the clouds.
