Eclipse photography 2/4

The mostly eclipsed solar disk is in the middle of this photo– just a bit above the center. Normally, at this stage of the eclipse, the partly exposed solar disk would cause retina damage if you look at it directly. But thanks to this cloud… ok, fine, yes, clouds don’t block UV light so looking at this is a BAD idea. I looked quickly. A few times. It was TOTALLY worth it. Here, you can look all you want, but you might need to zoom in a bit…

The entire eclipse was very “busy”. It was clear, then some clouds, then clear, a cloud… the viewing conditions changed second-by-second. Truly a rare event to see.

Wait we can explain…

eclipse was awesome, traffic, not so much. Didnt make our flite and decided to just steal our rental and drive 10 hrs to Pennsylvania… so far we’ve been stopped for speeding, stopped at a truck stop, eaten a bag of pork-rinds, stuck in traffic again, and are discussing where to have breakfast. In seven hours. This is like being in college again…
