On the day of the event, not everything was as we wanted, but the weather cooperated and I was able to get some amazing shots. With my brother's help, those of us with cameras made sure to take the time to observe things during the 2 minutes of totality and to not just look through our cameras. Totality was amazing! We all had goosebumps!
Below is a short sequence of the moon covering the sun, and the sun reemerging from the shadow of the moon. Enjoy!
1) It begins. (watch the sun spots throughout the series)
5) Almost there!
6) And we have totality! (look at the sun flares surrounding the moon)

8) The sun re-emerges.
