The weather forecast here yesterday called for heavy cloud cover. But, once again, the weather forecast turned out to be . . . WRONG!
We had some clouds, sure. But all afternoon we had clear eclipse viewing!
What a spectacle!
My dad nabbed an approved pair of eclipse glasses just days before the eclipse -- and he was more than willing to share. So we gathered in the backyard for a little eclipse party.
We tried a bit of everything when it came to watching the eclipse (because Science).
The humble colander (complete with requisite dog hair)
The tricky binoculars (with modification).
Old-school pinhole box camera (thanks Amazon Prime).
Everything worked -- but nothing was quite as awesome as watching with the eclipse glasses!
Here is my very favorite photo from yesterday . . .
(Makes me laugh out loud every time I look at it!)
It was a great afternoon. So much fun!
And . . . speaking of amazing spectacles . . .
Today is our anniversary. 36 years. And all of them sunny!
