Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Postby Firehawke » Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:03 pm

Did anyone else witness the eclipse today? I live in the path of totality...and got some fun pictures from my porch of the crescents that happen as eclipsing sunlight passes through tree canopies!

Awesome pic! I've seen a few like this on the net today.
I was watching NASAs live Youtube broadcast and it was fun to see all the scientists being excited. We got a partial here in the UK but sadly cloud cover obscured it for me!

We had about 70% coverage where I'm at. Saw bits of it between the clouds.

It's alright, I've seen quite a few partials and an annular! Also lots of lunar eclipses! Astronomy was a passion when I was younger XD
