Solar Eclipse
2017, August 21st Total Solar Eclipse


What a hoot! I had the opportunity to be in the center of the country at the epicenter of the total solar eclipse as the moon shadow crossed the country. This was a unique experience to share with my siblings, their spouses, nephews and friends. Thanks to my sisters Terry and Marian for having a good friend with a beautiful farm south of St. Louis that was aligned with the eclipse path of totality. Thanks also to my brother Mark for driving me around and hanging in the heat with me.

Thanks to Facebook Messenger, we were able to share the experience with other family members seeing the eclipse from various points across the country, Washington, California, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Mindy in Miami. This Total Eclipse was all it was supposed to be! A Grand Spectacle!
