Moon eats Sun… Like a cookie…

Another sequence shot of the annular eclipse of October 3, 2005. This one shot from Gárgoles de Arriba in Spain.

From the silhouette of the Moon descending, it really looks like it just came down and “ate” the Sun before moving off and continuing on its way.

No wonder many of the ancients had tales of the Moon consuming the Sun. (If we had our way, we would have added a bit about “and the Moon chomped up the Sun like a cookie”… But that’s just us…)
