Solar Eclipse at Sunset

This spectacular sunset was taken of the solar eclipse on April 8, 2005 from St. Croix, USVI. The eclipse started at 5:20 PM local time, behind a stationary cloud cover. We were resigned to not being able to view the actual eclipse when at approximately 6:17 PM, shortly before sunset, the sky suddenly brightened just below the clouds and we were treated to a solar eclipse sunset for the next 5 minutes.
