We are now about halfway between contact U1 (the start of the umbral phase) and contact U2 (start of total phase), which means it's about 6:45 p.m. The curve of Earth's shadow is just one of the ways to prove that Earth is spherical, not flat.

Celestron C5+ single fork arm with integrated wedge
Film: Kodak EliteChrome 200. Exposure data is missing, but this was probably around 1/30 sec. Slides were scanned by Boot's Camera.
