Total Eclipse of the Sun shot from Turkey

"The eclipse begins at first contact, when the edge of the moon kisses the outer rim of the sun. This image was taken shortly after first contact using a Calcium-K filter. A Calcium-K filter sees the sun in near-ultraviolet light, which is why the image looks purplish."

Very nice shots. For a different perspective, here is one taken from a weather satellite.
