Eclipse 2017

Totality, Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital, Charleston, SC    
What a fun day! After all the build up we had so many clouds and rolls of thunder I wasn't sure if we would see anything at all, but we did. The glasses worked and the image was exactly as it was supposed to be. It was a pure delight. We set a few chairs out in front of the hospital and enjoyed the show.

I didn't worry about taking pictures of the actual event but enjoyed the camaraderie and awesome display of nature. The picture above was a cell phone shot during totality and it didn't get as dark as I thought it might but was certainly impressive. What great fun. Can we do it again tomorrow?
