Total Solar Eclipse… yeah, but not here.
2:43 PM… 61% of the sun eclipsed here in the Upper Valley. I didn’t have acceptable eclipse glasses so I punched a few different sized holes in a scrap piece of cardboard as a makeshift pinhole device. It took me a bit but I managed to capture a photo. Not a great photo but it’ll do.
I believe the light dimmed a bit and it certainly had a weird glow but how can you capture that on a page?
I didn’t… instead I chose to celebrate the day by painting what I think of as the essence of a total eclipse… the sun’s corona!
I’ve put April 8, 2024 on my calendar… I’d love to see totality!
