Hazy skies make it difficult to get good photos, but I think these shots captured at mid-eclipse lend support to the claims that this was not a total eclipse. A bright sliver remained and was visible to the unaided eye and in binoculars, and it prevented the capture of deep red color without a flare on one side. The hazy sky made the bright edge more pronounced in my picture.
