Steubenville’s Zachary Coldebella was able to capture Thursday morning’s solar eclipse. Coldebella said he used a Canon 60da with a 3-inch refractor telescope to take the image just as the fog began to clear. He was set up in the parking lot of Bruno’s Pizza on Sunset Boulevard. The annular eclipse, which is called a “ring of fire” eclipse, occurs when a new moon is around its farthest point from us and appears to be smaller, so it doesn’t completely blot out the sun when it’s dead center. The upper portions of North America, Europe and Asia enjoyed a partial eclipse.
