Solar Eclipse

August 21, 2017



Here are photos from the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse.  At maximum eclipse, the moon covered 85% of the sun at our home in Northumberland County, Virginia.  Here are three photos -- beginning, middle, and maximum. 

These photos were made using a Sony DSCP93 digital camera attached to my Orion XT-12 Dobsonian reflector telescope.
