And for the upcoming 2017 eclipse, here is a simulated all-sky "fish-eye" view from a vantage point in the path of totality in Wyoming. We can see the moon's shadow sweeping across the sky dome.

Thanks Fridger. I just remembered I have a more detailed view here that goes in real-time: http://laps.noaa.gov/albers/eclipse/141 ... _polar.gif

It's still a challenge to get the secondary scattering right within the umbra.
