As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day, two cameras were used to create this dramatic view of the June 2001 total solar eclipse above Chisamba, Zambia. One camera captured totality and a thorn acacia tree while the second camera recorded the partial phases at 5 minute intervals through a solar filter. Fred Espenak/
