An eery light hovered over the mountains as F and I were snowshoeing under Monte Pelmo. Not only were we in the mountain's great shadow, but also under the moon's ombra in front of the sun this morning. Unfortunately a thin viel of clouds over our portion of Dolomites blocked a direct view of the spectacle of this partial solar eclipse, but we still sensed the world wth a strange vibrancy for a short while.
Here is a graphic of today's eclipse situation. For more information about how to better read the image and find out more, click here.
