Scenes from the Eclipse

The daystar remained terribly unphotogenic while being eaten–it more or less looked normal on camera the whole time. We got to about 96% of totality, and it was amazing through eclipse glasses and terribly boring on camera.

 

Even when I took its picture through my eclipse glasses.

 

The dog was unperturbed by it all.

 

The shadows were pretty amazing though.

 

Even through a colander.

 

The strangest thing to me was the quality of the light. It looked wrong coming from overhead but being so dim–perhaps how the peak of noon at summer would be from a more distant planet, or one orbiting an older star. I enjoyed it.
