This is a scanned images I took during totality. The image is Copyright (c) 1998 by Ralph P. Pass III.

Last updated March 18, 1998, I viewed the eclipse from the M/S Veendam which was located between Aruba and Curacao during the eclipse. We were steaming on a heading of about 230 at about 5 knots. The image below were taken with Kodak Kodacolor Gold 400 print film using a Nikon 6006 and a Sakar 500mm F/8 Maksukov lens. This is the result of ship motion during a four second exposure.
