Himself and I had our “Eclipse party” out on the deck this morning. It was pretty cool, actually. I bought the proper glasses at Lowes, I think it was, and am glad I did. Even tho he laughed at me at the time, he used his, too. We got to 88.something % here in Trinity Co in north Calif. That left just a sliver. I could not really tell the difference in the light from a partly cloudy or smokey day, but I could really feel the temperature drop. It did not get cold, its August after all, but it did get noticeably cooler. I managed to get a couple pictures to focus. I know there’s going to be a zillion better ones around but I just kind of wanted my own. It got much thinner than this but I could not get another one to focus.
Wonderful photo! your were so fortunate to have been in the right place. Maine was not so lucky.
I think there’s to be another one in some 30 years, if you want to wait, you might get another chance. I’m afraid I’m not going to see that one! lol
