Solar eclipses are an awesome sight. They say that there are 7 wonders
in the world, but an eclipse is completely out of this world. It beats
all the wonders you can think of!
In December 4 2002, I went with the camera's from Monash SPME to capture some
images of this awesome sight. Here's a
document I've written on Solar Eclipse photography titled "Totality
2002". The document is essentially a report I wrote for the Physics
Department and submitted as part of my assessment for a subject. It's
lengthy - about 5000 words. But it's worth your while if you have an
interest in solar eclipse photography or just want to read it for
kicks. You need xpdf if you're running a Unixy system with X or Adobe
Acrobat under Windoze.

I took in Lyndurst, South
Australia, December 4 2002.
The next solar eclipse that I've planned to get to is in 2006. It will
be in Ethiopia and will be close to the centre of the path of totality.
That means we'll probably get about 7 minutes of totality as opposed to
the 26.5 seconds we had at Lyndurst!
