The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, there was a spectacular solar eclipse that unfolded across North America. Here are my pictures of the eclipse as seen from West Palm Beach, Florida. To take these pictures, I held up my solar viewing glasses to the camera lens and used a low exposure setting to accommodate the brightness of the sun.

During the peak of the eclipse, the sunlight began to diminish slightly. It was still sunny only it wasn’t as bright. In fact I noticed that the traffic lights were shining brighter.

By 4:19pm, the show was over.

Even though Florida didn’t get the total eclipse, it was still a spectacular view nonetheless.
