36-frame Time-Lapse-Sequence, 14mm rectilinear Ultra-Wide-Angle
illustrates incoming umbra before 2nd contact, & departing umbra near 3rd contact
- the umbral "edges" are detectable, but diffuse
- Venus is visible shortly before 2nd contact, throughout TOTALITY
- the brightening SW sky near 3rd contact (end of totality)

18-frame Time-Lapse-Sequence, Corona Camera #2 [ 2nd contact ]
illustrates Bailey's-Beads & Diamond-Ring @2nd contact
- the "bottle-like" prominence on the NE limb
- the isolated beads
- the ring of beads along the arcs (you can barely perceive "humps"): this is due to the LONG exposure used.
