Stella is tending the camera

On May 20, 2012 Northern California was treated to a rare chance to see a total solar eclipse. We live in the forest, surrounded by tall trees, so we invited ourselves to our neighbor’s house. They live on the edge of Rock Creek Canyon and have a wonderful view to the West.

Totality

The event was predicted to peak at 6:27 PM and we were ready. I had ordered from Amazon six pairs of  Solar viewing glasses and a solar lens cover for my camera. We packed my Mom and Dad over to our neighbor’s and set up the camera and donned the “designer” glasses – we looked like we were ready for a 3-d movie.

Stella and Mom are ready
