Yesterday's Crescent Sun

The annular eclipse last evening was spectacular. I could not for the life of me find my eclipse glasses, the ones I got in my stocking a few years ago when we had that eclipse upon Christmas Day, nor could I locate my welding helmet; so, I was reduced to using a pinhole camera. Still impressive. Still intriguing. Still mystifying. Still astounding to stop and ponder the heavenly alignment of Sun, Moon, and Earth of being able to be witness to such wonder. 

I hope everyone else got a good glimpse. 

The next Total Solar Eclipse shall track right over my home--Casper, Wyoming! 

Been waiting a while, and now it's just five short years away. I'll be sure to have found my glasses.
