This page shows you a time-lapse movie of all progress of the total solar eclipse on Aug 21, 2017, which was edited from 212 shots during about 2 hours and half. I released it via the YouTube's server. The play speeds of partially and totally eclipsed parts are 300 times and 3 times respectively, and the scenes of diamond ring show with the real time-speed. The play time of whole book has approximately two minutes.
