    Map of the area around Boston, Massachusetts. An animated line shows the Path of totality - it passes over Mt Washington and Cape Cod. The animation shows how the lunar shadow will move during the eclipse.

    Shots of the sun as the eclipse takes hold. Good shots of totality as the moon goes in front of the sun. The corona stands out very clearly.
