The sun is annularly eclipsed in the US for the first time in 18 years, as seen from Monument Valley on the Utah-Arizona border. Above, a digital multiple exposure captures the spectacle with the solar filter coming off at sunset. Below, telephotos with and without a filter and some composites of the sequence.
