  The great 21 Aug 2017 eclipse in the USA

Amanda and I saw the Solar Eclipse from Greenville, South Carolina. It was a perfect day, clear skies. Most of all we were with some great friends. They travelled in from North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Toronto in Canada and Chatham, UK. It was like a military operation to get everyone together, but it worked like clockwork. I had two cameras; one concentrated on capturing the atmosphere on video, the other took close ups of the eclipse.

See how many stars you can see during totality. There is one red 'star' that can be ignored, it's just a dead pixel in the camera. Click on the box on the bottom right te view a full screen version.
