There are several sites giving live pictures, this one looks valuable. It will start using its remote telescopes at about 2:30pm Pacific time, with the first looks from Japan. This Sunday, 20 May annular eclipse will end about 7:30 Pacific time.

The moon is now ceasing its partial (about 85% in So. Cal.) occultation of the Sun. The temperature seemed to drop 10 or 15 degrees, the shadows of tree leaves cast miniature crescent moon/sun images. In short a good time was had by all.

See you for the Venus transit of the Sun (very rare) June 5 or 6, depending.

I was going to use the eclipse to practice my solar photography technique in anticipation of the Venus transit. However,the weather had other plans.

Too bad you did not use the slooh website. Their speciality is using remote telescopes all over the planet so that weather is rarely a problem. The Venus transit will be broadcast for free, no need to pay to join, so one can use their images.
