I almost missed this. I had heard that we might be able to view a smidge of the “Ring of Fire” eclipse that the West Coast was going to experience. Even though I knew about it, I had written it off because the weather forecast talked of rain starting in the afternoon. Naturally, I assumed, we wouldn’t even see a sunset and just put it out of my mind.
As it happens, while working on some other photos on my computer, I noticed an odd color in the sky and, out of habit, took a look. Then I remembered! And, then I dashed for my camera. As I ran out the door I told my wife to look out the window and I would be outside taking pictures.
We only saw a partial eclipse, but it put on a nice show any way.
