This ia a revision to my first mosiac posted here. The reason being: the moon travels across the sky faster than the sun, therefore it is the moon that covers the sun and not the other way around as shown in the first mosiac.

I am retracting this post until I understand this completely. It seems that the internet has confusing information as to movement of moon relative to the sun.

For a good explanation of the motion of the moon/sun see this FB post by the director of Lowell Observatory: https://www.facebook.com/jeffreyhalllowell/posts/1475205809236404

Note: one of the images in that post was taken by me in the 2012 annular eclipse.
