  • AS A MATTER OF FACT, IT’S ALL DARK

    Filed at 8:36 pm under by dcobranchi

    Here’s a very grainy shot of the total eclipse, taken about 5 minutes after totality began. This was taken with the camcorder on a long zoom. It didn’t really come through in the video, but the moon was quite orange. Bonus points for identifying the origin of the title.

    UPDATE: It appears we got luckier than most. Surfing around I discovered that a lot of the sites that had set up webcasts were disappointed by cloudy skies.

    UPDATE: I’ve removed the photo.

    Yeah, the kid went out with the digital camera several times and was unable to get a shot. She complained bitterly about the cloud that had “parked itself” in front of the moon. Oh well.
