Not my photo. Guy hanging out near me with a telescope and a good camera. One of the best things I've ever seen.

Oh, that's super cool. I want the actual image file, too!

Photographer's name is Phillip Yoon and I believe he lives in Charlotte NC. He said he's not on twitter (or I'd have linked him when I posted there). Dunno if he's online elsewhere.

Eh, a cursory google search didn't offer any promising leads. I can't imagine that he would fail to put such an amazing image online somewhere. I'll just have to hope that it eventually gets shared around so I get a chance to see it.

I'm almost directly in the path of totality for the next one. Looking forward to the real deal after getting a partial this time.

I was so distant from the path that i thought the sun just ducked behind a cloud for a moment or two.

And it was a cloudy day so I thought it did.

Oh, awesome! Thanks for finding that. (I guess this is one of the downsides of my facebook abstinence.)

Thanks Lady! I don't much use facebook either, so I'd missed that. Nice to have a better copy.

I've just been told that the eclipse after next, in 2045, passes directly over my hometown in Podunk, Nowhere.

So I guess I've got that one if I miss totality in 2024.

Man, 2024 passes like smack dead over Cleveland. I'll probably still have family there by then...?
