Total Eclipse!

Oh my gosh we have so much to catch up on... but right now we are in the Metropolis IL Public Library and I finally have a little (slow) wifi. I have about 4.3 minutes until the kids need something again so here goes... 

The eclipse was AMAZING!!!! We were in Eddyville, IL at Hayes Canyon Campground and it could not have been a better spot. We had over two minutes of totality! We met friends there from our old neighborhood in Northbrook and we all really enjoyed the time together... hiking, s'mores and of course, the eclipse. 

This is Linda Marks... She is the President if the Michiana Astronomical Society and just happened to be camping by us... they brought so many telescopes and talked us through the eclipse every step of the way....




Max, the girls and others watching...




 Look at the crescent shapes showing on the chair... 
Gus had a hard time with the glasses, he kept telling me he saw the moon :) I guess he did, but what he was talking about was the sun impersonating the moon. 
 More crescents...

Cereal box viewers....



 Professional viewers...



This is a shot I took borrowing a special filter...



Here you can see the holes of the spoon were all little crescents...


 More professional equipment...



My TOTALITY shots...





 Diamond ring!



It was so incredible to be where we were for this amazing day!!!!!
