August 21st Eclipse

Using a solar filter, a small pair of binoculars, and my phone’s camera, I managed to capture some decent photos of today’s solar eclipse. We did not have total darkness where I live, the Sun was only about 85% obscured by the Moon. Here are some of the photos I took:

The Moon begins moving away again

You can’t really tell from this photo of my garden, but the daylight was noticeably subdued during the height of the eclipse.

Speaking of the garden, not much new to report. The okra is loving the hot, humid weather and is producing abundantly.
