• Every beam of light through the trees becomes a reverse image of the eclipse. I will never see this happen again.
  • Wow!! This is the shadow of the solar eclipse and it happens for 15 minutes once every hundred years.

2012 Solar eclipse

I just had to share this experience!
We were enjoying the amazing solar eclipse in the front yard this afternoon when I looked around and saw something even MORE amazing; A thousand baby eclipses! As a strange darkness descended upon the town, every ray of light filtering through the trees became a tiny eclipse moving with the breeze on the side of the house. I have to say it was one of the most unexpected and beautiful things I have ever seen. The next eclipse here on the west coast isn't until the year 2071, so we watched them fade away with more than a little sadness.
