That answers my earlier iPhone question. Thanks. They don't mention damage from shooting the moon but I can only guess.
What they basically did was a high-tech version of the grade school science demo of lighting something on fire using the sun and a magnifying glass.
The first part of that video showed an exposure of only a few seconds and the resulting smoke. You don't want that to be your retinae.
On one of the photo boards there was discussion of one poor amateur photographer who actually melted holes in 35mm film when shooting a previous eclipse without a solar filter.
Here's the view from Phx. A bit cloudy but that helped. These are taken with my Lumix behind a piece of xray film.
I didn't think it would be a big deal but watching coverage on ABC I'm kinda jealous I'm not in the Area of Totality.
Dan took the good camera with the filter on a plane today. I'm home with my 4th grade science tricks.
Shadows through my rose bush.
Sounds like a title to a Oprah produced chick flick.
For those who care, I am currently just outside of Morrill Nebraska off the side of a side road at the bottom of a 15 foot cliff amongst a half ton of garbage shooting the eclipse.
I will be staying to finish all the way through fourth contact and maybe drive back or stay somewhere.
I'll post some photos when I get back and process them which may or may not be tonight.
Hopefully everyone enjoyed the eclipse.
Big nothing here. Cloudy and looks like a rain day.
hey guys I couldn't get any good photos of it lol we are in Michigan
If you have any please share them!!
Wow nice photo thanks...I'm just watching thru tv lol
Ooooooohhhhh. That's neat. Thanks.
It was incredible in St. Louis. Crickets chirping and the ability to see it with the glasses off was a once in a lifetime experience.
You are a VMB icon.
Btw, I took the opportunity to have a eclipse party. Cool, but a big cloud came over and it is starting to rain.
From my porch here in NJ ( no fancy camera)
Unless you're near St. Louis again in 2024....
ha, I saw that. My kids will be old enough then. I'll probably have to pack up the van.
Saw photos online where someone did the shadow thing, using a colander. Wish I'd thought of that.
Here is one of the crescents through our maple tree on my dead lawn.
