"The most beautiful eclipse I have ever witnessed." - David Levy 24 Nov, 2003

"The Shadow moved-in from east to west across the southern sky as diamond ring occurred on the opposite side of the Sun's disk. We observed shadow bands on the ground which looked like a thin, 2" deep sea of smoke moving quickly from east to west for some 10 minutes. The entire sky twinkled and shimmered in a glimmering penumbra with a very strange overall shadow-band effect we have never witnessed before.  The corona showed large forked streamers spiking off the 1:00 position in a green hue, with the lower half of the corona migrating through the yellow, orange and red spectrum down to the horizon. The Sun's disc appeared to 'roll' across the horizon from right to left,with third contact appearing in a 'kiss' wedged between sun, moon and earth. " - Jen Winter 24 November, 2003
