We live in a pretty amazing world! Sunday we headed out with some friends to watch the solar eclipse from the cute little town of Kanarraville, Utah. Lucky for us, we just live about 20 minutes away from what was deemed a “sweet spot”. The eclipse was visible from within a narrow strip that crossed the northern hemisphere and Kanarraville happened to lie in the center path.
This is the ring of fire, resulting from the moon passing in between the earth and sun. We were able to stare at the sun through our solar glasses and watch the whole thing transpire. It was awesome. I didn’t think to get a solar filter for my camera, so the pictures above are courtesy of Logan Blake. We happened to have the same camera and I was able to help him with some settings. And he graciously offered to share his photos!
The eclipse shaped shadows were almost just as neat! Right after I snapped this picture, Jayna baby spewed all over the sidewalk. Poor girl! She threw up 2 more times in the car on the way home and then again after we had bathed her. My first experience seeing an eclipse as well as dealing with a pukey baby, it was a memorable night we won’t soon forget!
