wow, what an evening. on the way to finding a place to watch the eclipse, we saw–elephants! i kid you not. must be a circus in town. then we found a dark farm field to watch the whole thing for a couple of hours. all the clouds cleared out in time and it was astounding. then we heard a pack of coyotes howling right across the field from us–i suppose at the moon! we sort of got going then.
of course all my phone shots just look like a tiny blob of light, it figures. but it was a beautiful light show, so surreal. here are not very good shots of the beginning. somehow a huge glowing red orb of light hanging in the sky was invisible to my poor excuse for a camera. but anyway we got to see it with our own eyes.
