Sunday's annular eclipse produced more than a few stunning shots of the Moon turning the Sun into a "ring of fire" visible to millions along the West Coast and across Southeast Asia. But only one time-lapse video of the event is truly worth your time: Cory Poole's 700-photo strong chronicle of the solar hide-and-seek.

Captured through a Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stack telescope, known for its extremely narrow bandpass, the time-lapse lets viewers see the chromosphere, "and not the much brighter photosphere below it."

Individual stills will be made available on Poole's website. As for the other must-see shots, check out this comprehensive compendium from the Atlantic's In Focus.
