Nice! Far better than what I got with my cell phone.

I've been amped about the eclipse for months now.

This morning? This is what I saw when I drove to work:

You'd think this goes without saying, but, apparently, it needs sayin. Wait, don't do that either for pity's sake!

I know you all don't have much to compare this shot to, but I'm telling you, about fifteen minutes before maximum coverage (92% at my location) it became noticably dimmer. And definitely colder.

This was a bit closer to the maximum coverage and you can see it's darker still.

Oh yeah. The eclipse! It *did* happen, and I have the pics to prove it.


I made a pinhole camera and it worked well, but none of the pictures I took using it came out very well. And, I bought a welding helmet (see: personality twist that f*ck you up, subsection overpacking/compensation/fear of deprivation). I looked through it and I took pictures through it. My neighbor from the bakery brought over his colander. Top marks for creativity. And quantity.
