Using special sun glasses from BYU, we were able to look directly at this amazing eclipse. We even put the glasses over the camera lense and got some pretty nifty shots. While reading safety instructions off of the glasses later, I discovered that you are actually not supposed to do that. Shhh...don't tell.
While you look at these WONDERFUL pictures, you should play this song.
|The first look we had of the eclipse, with the moon just starting to creep over it!|
|Since we stayed in Springville instead of driving down to Cedar city, we didn't get the perfect "ring of fire" view.|
|About a half hour later or so....this was as close to the total eclipse as we got.|
|I feel like this one is out of order...|
|THE SUN!!! Steven took this picture of the sun without the special lense over the camera.|
HOLY MOLY THE SUN IS BRIGHT!!
Also, you can't see the moon at all. I'm pretty sure I was falsely advertised to my whole life about
what an eclipse was. :S
|TWO SUNS???? WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?|
|Oh, ok, here are some better ones as the moon continued to move past!|
|Oooooooo! Ahhhhhh! You should all be super impressed by these great camera shots.|
|Okay, here is the last picture we took because after this the clouds covered everything|
up and we couldn't see the eclipse anymore. You can look at all the photos backwards to imagine
what it looked like going away. :)
And now that you have seen THAT version of the song, you really must watch "The Literal Version" because you will laugh until you cry. It is one of my most favorite videos ever. EEEEEEVER. Of all time. Ever.
Please watch this now. ;)
