Totality

The ONLY decent pic I got. Good grief that 2 minutes went by fast!!!
This was the LAST shot I took, as you can see at around 2 & 5 o'clock, the sun is starting to peek back through (or maybe sun flares?) and I just got this shot off in time before it was over and I had to turn off and move the camera before it got damaged. Truly, it was a comedy of errors. I had 2 cameras ready, the first I was going to try to get hand-held pics but I quickly realized that was a bad idea, so I ran over to the other camera which was on a tripod with a remote shutter release ready to go, and then I was so excited I was clicking away at 150mm vs zooming out to 600 lol! Once I realized what the heck I was doing, I zoomed out to 600mm, and got a few shots, with this being the last and only decent one. You think to yourself, "2 1/2 minutes is a long time to take some pics" but NOPE, especially when you're also gawking at one of the most spectacular sights you've ever seen

Beautiful shot! I'm way too far south for more than just a tiny sliver, but it was cloudy anyway :-(

We only had a little more than a minute totality (after driving about 250-300 miles to get that close)--so we decided to just look and remember, rather than spend time trying to line up and click pictures.

We drove up into Wyoming from Colorado Springs--left about 9:30 Sunday night and found a place to park and put up a tent in an absolutely jam packed rest stop (but it had REST ROOMS!!---huge lines in the morning, but still.....)

Seeing a full solar eclipse has always been on my bucket list...spectacular--well worth the drive.


Those sure look like solar flares to me--usually you get that diamond ring effect when the sun starts moving out of the moon’s shadow. Just one very bright spot on one edge of the sun, with the rest still showing a bit of coronal effect.

So awesome! Great photo. We only were about 80% here but at least it was clear sky in this part of PA. Usually when something awesome is happening in the sky, it is always cloudy here. Was all ready with my glasses (which I bought a year ago) and my solar binoculars (which I bought last winter). The one coming in 2024 is going to come through northwestern PA so I am definitely planning (if I am still alive) on traveling for that one! Will be 95% here but would love to see totality. Mel, on my bucket list also!

I cheated and got my photo from the internet to illustrate the post...having no trust in our ability to do any photography, we just watched with our little eyeballs.

We only had about 75% coverage here in south Texas, and clouds to boot. I didn't even try. It did get kind of dark, though.

I was in Portland, Oregon (99.2 totality--you had to be just a little south to get whole totality) I didn't even buy glasses having taken the advice of a meteorologist who said that good pictures are hard to get (I'm really impressed with yours) and you should settle for those taken by professionals.

So I went out to water just before it started0--never looked at the sun but it was amazed as it got darker and darker and all the birds (the crows in the back yard had been yammering at each other all morning) shut up. The silence was impressive.

And CBS had the best shot on the 6:00 pm news--it was the sun (with appropriate filters) taken when the moon had obscured maybe 1/5th of the sun--there was a small spot moving rapidly across the still lighted section and the news caster said; "See that dot? It's the space station..."

Amazing pic! My parents drove from Colorado to Wyoming to watch the eclipse and said they enjoyed it- meanwhile in south Texas I didn't see anything except a blinding light - I wasn't properly equipped but will be in 7 years when there is another one.
