   Sunrise Eclipse

  A horned sun rises at Beinn Bhuidhe Mhór a few miles south of Culloden, Scotland. Imaged by David D Miller of St Andrews during the annular eclipse of the sun on May 31, 2003. Atmospheric refraction defers not to eclipses, the sun's disk and the moon's silhouette are each flattened by 11%.
