2017 Continental United States Solar Eclipse

Today we had the 2017, August 21st Solar Eclipse, which crossed most of the continental United States. It was a great time to be had by our attendees! We saw the solar bands, and it got dark outside, and the temperature dropped noticeably!

Back at the 2012 Transit of Venus, I fashioned a solar funnel to see more detail on the surface of the sun. However, for today's eclipse, the binocular/tripod combo seemed to be an ideal setup.
