Total Solar Eclipse 11 July 2010

Hikueru Atoll French Polynesia

A very authentic experience spent as guests of the local Polynesians on Hikueru Atoll, 500km east of Tahiti. Weather was not at all promising on the morning of the eclipse, but through incredible good luck totality coincided with a brief break in the clouds.
