Beauty pics, eh?! Judging from the angle of the sun, I'd say those were taken somewhere around the area of Stanley, Idaho. wink.gif

As I mentioned, there's another total solar eclipse in Central Texas in April, 2024. Well, I just found out that there is also an annular eclipse here less than six months earlier in 2023! An annular eclipse almost entirely covers the sun, but not quite. It has to do with the eccentric orbit of the moon, placing it a bit farther out during an annular eclipse.

Gimme a shout if any of you are around here for it. Here's a link to what it will look like from San Antonio:

I love the colander trick. The dragon is cool too (and the Saltine). There were high cirrus clouds over Casper. They did not detract from totality but we did not get shadow bands or the little pinhole crescents. I did not attempt to image the sun but I did take a movie of us watching totality (it gets dark, we hoot and holler, then it gets light again). Once I get the movie edited I'll try to post a link (maybe Flickr?).

Anybody for Chile 2019 (the next total solar eclipse on this world)?

The eclipse was an awe inspiring site...humbling...one of the most beautiful events in nature. I've seen several partial solar eclipses, and they are impressive. However, to see one in totality is another thing all together. Even photos can't prepare you for when the sun goes black and that corona bursts out from the edges. It amazes me how a pitch black orb can have such a molten/shimmering quality to it. It was safe to view without glasses during that brief time of totality, and the only way to get the full effect. In the mountains of Idaho, we had about a 15 F temperature drop, which was far less chilling than the sensation of watching what the sun was doing. It was nothing short of spectacular.

You may recall that I mentioned looking under a tree during the partial phase. You see many crescent suns projected on the ground. There were no suitable trees where we were, so I criss-crossed the fingers of both hands to make small holes for the light to travel through. It worked, so we got out a colander; even better! (see pics) I was not pleased with the pics I took of the sun but did get one good eclips photo. (see other pic) biggrin.gif

Did you get out there for some activities with your class? That colander thing would have gone over well!

We wanted to take our granddaughters with us to see it, but it was the first day of the school year.👎


Nope. The kids weren't in school yet. It would have been great, though . . .
