    Re: Solar eclipse captured!!

    The sun was way too bright and overloaded your camera's sensor even though it was partially obscured. What you have captured (away from the center of the frame) is an internal reflection. It's usually not a good idea to point a camera at the Sun without proper filtration because you can damage it.
