2017 Solar Eclipse

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

The 2017 solar eclipse has come, and gone – but it left a strong impression. So much so, that I am already considering how to travel to the next one in the US: 2024.

We viewed it from my brothers property just south of Philomath, OR. The hour leading up to totality was interesting enough, but everything changed when the shadow hit. Suddenly, all the lights went out. It took a full 30 seconds for my eyes to adjust and the entire event only lasted about 90 seconds. Honestly, it was unlike anything I have ever experienced.

We did bring our nikon and a 300mm lens – which captured some interesting photos – but we didn’t worry about photography too much. There were plenty of others around the US capturing award wining photos (cough, cough, nasa)
