Solar eclipse photo sharing is the best way to get back to blogging, don’t you think?
I am going to try my darnedest to keep up with two blogs! It’s said it before, I know, but you probably don’t remember (lol) since it’s been so long!
To start things off here is a quick share of our eclipse experience yesterday.
Viewing the eclipse with a pinhole box…
We visited a friend’s place where there was a better view of the sun at this time of the day. Our home in the city would probably have had us standing in the road to view the eclipse!
My friend, Dawn, was determined to make some eclipse viewers. I am glad she did as I didn’t have any boxes to bring over that were large enough for us to stick our heads into like a pinhole camera. She found that there were no longer any big boxes at her place either but did a search and found directions using a small box. It worked wonderfully!
Even though we were not in the path of totality (big sad face) we were able to view a partial eclipse. It was very exciting!
This was about as much of the eclipse as we were able to see from Nova Scotia. I love that it looks like a crescent moon!
It’s at times like these that we can be thankful for such easy access to other people’s photos of the solar eclipse! There are some wonderful ones circulating on Instagram. Some people used a colander to view the eclipse! What a great idea! Instead of seeing full circles of sunshine coming through the holes of the colander you see what looks like half moons. I wish I had thought of that! We also saw pictures, such as at Melissa Wiley’s blog Here in the Bonny Glen, where the shadows of trees looked like so many half moons as well. Just beautiful!!
What a wonderful world we inhabit.
