Photo of the Week for October 31, 2014

Sunset Partial Eclipse by Randy AtwoodFor the partial solar eclipse of October 23, veteran amateur astronomer Randy Attwood was positioned on a hill in Mississauga, Ontario, with a clear view to the west to catch this dramatic view that includes the added attraction of a Jupiter-sized sunspot, the largest in 24 years. He used a full-aperture solar filter on a 90mm f/14 Questar Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope fitted with a Canon 60D DSLR camera.
