Constantinos Emmanouilidis sends the picture from Mangaia, one of the Cook Islands. "A small group of three astronomers traveled halfway around the globe to reach beautiful Mangaia. Here are the images we have taken through the clouds."
Oh, and Andrew, that video is very nice, and i love the music :)

On July 11, 2010, the new moon passed directly in front of the sun, causing a total solar eclipse. The path of totality stretched across the South Pacific Ocean, and the Moon's umbral shadow didn't make landfall except for a few spots; Mangaia (Cook Islands) and Easter Island (Isla de Pascua), southern Chile and Argentina, with a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering the South Pacific and southern South America. On hand to witness the event at Easter Island were Jonathan and Michael Doochin, who graciously shared several of the images included here. You can also check out Jonathan's Twitpic page for more pictures of the eclipse as seen on Easter Island.
