was not all that exciting after all. I didn’t even bother to try to find the special glasses. I know, I know I sound like a boring person. My tablet refuses to let me write (p-oo-per) even though I have turned off the spelling correction. -I absolutely hate this device-
We have the best luck viewing the lunar eclipses in this location. I ambeing sarcastic. Clouds have blocked out every last lunar eclipse we have had for the last decade. So. I was not even going to get excited about a solar eclipse. I was more concerned about the *end of the world* rumors that were circulating (I live in the South). I would not have even given that a thought but I had to drive to Florence, AL to deliver a piece of art for a show.
I stopped for a bite to eat during the *climax* of this event. It was a little dark as I was going into the restaurant…as in “approaching thunderstorm dark, not no sun dark”. People were going outside to take a look. I watched it on TV while I ate.
As I was getting back into my vehicle to leave I decided to try taking a picture of it…aimed my camera to the sky without using the view finder…. Clouds. I got a great picture of clouds.
