1. Wide view of eclipse - small version (41.5 MB) Original recorded in portrait as avi file by Fuji f200exr digital camera. Rotated nondistorted avi file is 1.4 GB in size. This is a much smaller wmv version but is distorted (wider). Still captures the city noises compared with last year's relative desert silence.
2. Semizoomed view (42.6 MB) Recorded with Sony HDR-TG5V, converted to wmv
