Wallace takes drug addiction - the sine qua non of annularity
- as his model for the lives he renders, the world he renders them in and the narrative form in which these are simultaneously explained and obscured.
In larger scopes, a ring structure is apparent as the center darkens to show annularity
when a filter is applied to the view.
The path of annularity
continues southeast with the Sun sinking lower.
This results in a thick annular ring of sunlight surrounding the Moon at mid-eclipse and a rather broad path within which annularity
is visible, ranging from 147 to 201 miles (237 to 323 km) in width.
east-west oval with fainter ends, a suggestion of annularity
, and a dim
NGC 6337 in Scorpius, depicted at left and charted on page 58 of the Pocket Sky Atlas, is nicknamed the Cheerio Nebula and gives a better hint of annularity
, with some observers unabashedly describing a ring.
Brooke Comber noted that shadow bands were not seen during the eclipse and made detailed sketches of Baily's Beads (seen at left) at the beginning and end of annularity
I can confirm the annularity
with a filtered view through my 10-inch scope at 213x.
These small tropical countries on the northern coast of South America were the only solid ground touched by the path of annularity
at sunrise that day; the rest of the narrow, 13,800-kilometer-long (8,600-mile) track traversed the open waters of the South Atlantic.
, the partial phases took over once again.
To record the foreground, a normal (unfiltered) exposure was taken a few minutes after annularity
As a result the maximum duration of annularity
will be a lengthy 4 minutes 31 seconds, when the Sun is high overhead in central Sudan.
It had been raining the whole day; it stopped only 15 to 20 minutes before annularity
, which lasted only 12 seconds.
Robinson and other members of the Sky & Telescope staff viewed 8 seconds of annularity
in pristine skies that followed the passage of a weather front.
IOTA encourages timing of Baily's Beads phenomena on the Moon's limb from locations near the edges of the paths of annularity
during these eclipses.
