Total Solar Eclipse 2009


_MG_3638 2 3 4 5 final-1

Photos were taken from my village Rangalirbas of Nageshwari Upozilla from District of Kurigram, Bangladesh. Equipment I used was a Canon 5D MarkII Camera with a 70-200mm Canon IS Lseries lens. Used a professional Menfrotto Tripod.

Wikipedia has published my photos for their documentation and also this photos were published in my Facebook account ( I am now uploading the high res version to my flickr account (

So far I know no one got a clear of eclipse due to cloud. I was lucky! If you need any picture of mine for your publication you may contact me directly.

Happy Solar Eclipse!


  1. I am developing an online introduction to astronomy here at the University of Illinois. I would like to use your great images of the 2009 eclipse. The images would be behind a password protected website and I will give credit and any links you wish.
    May I have permission to use them?
