It's rather exciting stuff to be able to see an almost total solar eclipse as we did last evening. I can remember only one other in my lifetime (though my husband tells me I've seen three). We weren't in the best path this time but what we saw was still amazing. The photo below shows it at as close to its peak as I could get.
Also interesting were the shadows created. The photo on the right was the sun shining through an ash tree onto the garage door.
Wow! When do get get to see the next one?!!?
