Local photographer Jacob Zimmer caught the partial eclipse Sunday evening, and talks about how he got this beautiful shot from Deam Lake in Indiana,

 "I suspected getting away from the city lights and a little bit different view might help. We were up on a dam so the view of the horizon was pretty good. I couldn't see it on my camera at first and was afraid I had missed it altogether, but played with the contrast, brightness, shadows and highlights a little bit and was able to see the shadow. Of course I took a bunch of photos before and after and this was the last one before it went completely behind the cloud."

Go to www.zymage.com for more of Jacob's pictures or to his facebook page.

So, locally we got a Partial Eclipse, but out west they got the "ring of fire" Annular Eclipse.  Look at the amazing picture below taken by Greg Jackson from the National Weather Service office in Midland, Texas.  You can see why they call it the "ring of fire".
