Not surprisingly, the Boston Globe’s Big Picture website has the most stunning collection of yesterday’s total solar eclipse. Simply astonishing. (And apparently there were photographers all over Asia positioning themselves to get shots of the eclipse with some famous landmark in the foreground.)

Look at pretty pictures here!

Below are just a few examples.


A partial solar eclipse is seen beyond a statue of Mahatma Gandhi in the southern Indian city of Chennai, India.



A man continues his chore – emptying a rubbish bin in front of the world’s largest stone Buddha statue – despite the darkness of the total solar eclipse above the city of Leshan, Sichuan province, China.



A dinosaur sculpture situated outside a themed restaurant is silhouetted against a partial solar eclipse in Taipei, Taiwan.
