The October 23rd solar eclipse was at its maximum at 4:07 pm here in Calgary.  It was a partial eclipse with the moon blocking out a majority, but not the entire sun.  The sun swung like a pendulum behind the moon which afforded a couple of images of each of the distinct phases.  The image above was taken at 4:07 PM MST which was at the maximum.
