Solar Eclipse 2017

The Great American Solar Eclipse

August 21, 2017


In New Hampshire we had approximately 65% coverage at maximum. The light had a strange cast even from a cloudless sky. There was an eerie silence broken only by the neighbor’s rooster that we can assure has had a screwed up body clock for its entire life. Had two of that neighbor's kids over for a lengthy look.


We had filters so that we could safely look up, but we also had fun using some indirect methods. Pics by Aunt Claire follow.


The sun shines through a colander.

Have I mentioned my memoir, UB. In it – a chapter on a lifetime enriched by astronomy. The memoir will be re-offered at a reduced price when we open up the Bob Store.
