Yesterday we took a break from all the working on the new house, got in the car and went up North on I-5 to a location just south of Redding to watch the annular solar eclipse. It was quite a drive, but so worth it.
Yes, you can call us crazy.
The Geek had his small camera attached to the spotting scope and got some really cool pictures of the eclipse.
Kaefer was wearing the sunfilter glasses we got for the total solar eclipse in Germany back in August 1999.
Of course she had to goof around!
I loved how the beginning eclipse changed the shadows on the ground - it was fascinating and so beautiful.
The moon starts biting into the sun - wonderful how she went up in front of the sun.
The peak - we almost saw four minutes of the Ring of Fire - fascinating, gorgeous - I actually was (and still am) at a loss of words.
Slowly the moon leaves the center of the sun...
... and climbs up into the sky.
The shadows were still dancing on the ground.
It was a beautiful day.
Did you see the eclipse?
