Spectacular 2017 Solar Eclipse

The 2017 Solar Eclipse, from a Michigan Perspective
As the sun and moon crossed the daytime sky, it left a nation in awe. From Oregon to South Carolina, many spectators in the sun’s path were able to witness the totality of a perfect eclipse. To watch the eclipse though, required the right gear and preparations. With fear of going blind, welder’s glass was sold out throughout the states, inadequate goggles were being sold and recalled, last minute hopefuls scurried from store to machine shop looking for some type of option. Fortunately, as a prepared scout, my kids and I had a variety of ways to watch the event.

While some of us “northerners” may not have seen the picture perfect ring, it was still a spectacular sight to behold. After a couple dozen shots, I selected a few photos that depicted what we saw.
