I was on top of a hill overlooking the Northumberland Strait. Seven minutes before second contact, a cloud covered the eclipse. Thankfully, it passed with four minutes to go and totality began in a clear patch. This image occurred with only the chromosphere and corona exposed, letting the hot pink hydrogen light bleed into the lunar disk.
