kilometers inside the orbit of the Earth, near Lagrange point L1

 It is a collection of photos made into a film, like an animated "GIF".

So I went back to my image, cropped it and stretched certain intensities and the result is  the following:

After a bad day, I am feeling better!

Let the eclipse come,



PS I am using a P1000 Nikon
