If you live or tune into news in North America, you have probably been bombarded with the Great American Eclipse news for several weeks now. Today was the day…August 21, 2017.
I will admit, I didn’t get as excited as many others, but did want to see it. I was grateful to a friend at church who shared the special viewing glasses with us. (I’m not a selfie taker, so I stink at selfies and on another note – the pool belongs to our neighbor)
I had other things to do beside just watching the eclipse – a medical appointment, running a few errands and work. While I was out and about it was raining and raining with clouds completely covering the skies, so I was thinking that the hype was going to be all for nothing if one can’t view the eclipse. In our area, the clouds parted about a hour before the eclipse would pass, making it possible to view the 99% coverage that we were going to be experiencing in Pleasant Hill, Missouri.
Below are pictures of the eclipse as it passes by. FYI – I put the glasses lens over the camera lens to try and capture the eclipse.
This picture I took of the neighbors because of the sky. This is what the sky looked liked during the coverage phase – clouds that weren’t visible during the sunlight became visible and shades of pink like sunset colors were visible.
The sun’s back out and the clouds have disappeared that were visible during the “dark” portion – we didn’t have dark as in nighttime.
