Ring of fire

Well I was really sad not to be in viewing range of the solar eclipse yesterday. It was a good one. These were the best two photos I saw of it.

This was the best video timelapse that crossed my radar.

Last solar event I witnessed was in 1970. That was a magical one. I was hiking in a birch forest with deep snow drifts. It was spring I guess because there was a crust of corn snow. They looked like jewels in your hand. Guess I'll have to wait for 2017 to try to recreate that moment. My luck, I'll be stuck on the wrong coast again.

Yeah, my family in Alaska were shut out by overcast skies too. That's worse I guess, because you knew there was a chance to see it if only the sky had been clear...
