Totally Eclipse

Although I don't know how to take those amazing eclipse photos,  we had some fun watching the eclipse last night. Rog had the wacky idea to use a CD as a pinhole camera. He held it up to the sunset-facing window
and it worked, projecting the image of the moonshadow over the sun on the wall. It was a bit blurry because the "pinhole" was so big
so he tried the tea infuser, which has many small holes
and created many small eclipses on the wall.
Then we realized the entire living room was a disco-ball swirl of eclipses, floor, walls and ceiling, reflected from two mosaic glass candle holders on the table in the sun!

Very neat indeed. We had rain so we didn't get to see it.

Oh no, Julio's leaving! I miss him and his family too much already, and Arizona is TOO FAR away. Good luck and best wishes to them!
