Eclipse

There was a solar eclipse over the Pacific Ocean today that could be seen by the western portion of the USA. On campus, the science department had glasses for people to look through.



So I showed up around 6:00 and sat around doing homework for a while. More people came, and we got glasses.


It was about an hour long show before the clouds got in the way. But luckily, the largest coverage of the eclipse (it wasn't a full one from here) happened just before the clouds got in the way.



These are pictures from my phone with the dark lens over the camera. The first one is around 7:00, and the second one is around 7:20. There was less sun than is seen in the pictures when you looked through the glasses with your own eyes, but alas, phone cameras can only do so much.


This was definitely a great way to start the week. 

Oh, and Nick getting his phone working again and being able to talk to him definitely improved the day, too. :)
