A rare solar eclipse wowed early risers this morning. Joshua Mink of Hilton was at Irondequoit Bay this morning and captured images of the solar eclipse between 5:30 and 5:45 a.m. Mink is the son-in-law of Emily Cebula, director of the Yates Community Library in Lyndonville.

“I’m lucky I was able to get these close intimate shots of an amazing phenomenon,” Mink said. “The weather and clouds worked out perfectly.”

The moon partially blocked out the sun to create a “ring of fire” solar eclipse.
