The Funny Thing about Solar Eclipses

I took time off and traveled to Missouri with my wife and dog Brandi to witness the Great Eclipse of 2017, which we also watched with my stepson Chris. I’ve posted pictures of this event. Here are some more.

What you might not know is the difference between a solar eclipse, lunar eclipse and apocalypse.

That being said, during the partial eclipse phase I mentioned to Chris what I had read on the Internet. According to sources, light filtered through gaps in a tree’s leaves project the actual eclipse.

We tested this theory and came up with this, confirming it’s true. Take a look.

Millions of Pictures of the Great Eclipse of 2017 Better than Mine, but Mine are Mine!

That being said, I took my own amatuer photos of the total eclipse as see from the St. Louise area. I capture the corona and some interesting (but not understood by me) pink coloration around the edges of the totally eclipsed sun.

It was an experience of a lifetime.

Now that the 2017 Eclipse is over, look what I saw from my camera

I do not know why the corona had flashes of pink. Were these corona ejections perhaps? The corona was easy to capture during the total eclipse phase.
