Solar Eclipse

Anyone else catch that eclipse tonight? WOW! I didn't have the special glasses and I didn't make an eclipse viewer, but I DID have two pairs of sunglasses that I layered together! ;) If you squinted and shaded your eyes a bit, they worked just fine. Just don't look for TOO long at a time.

You can kind of see it in this picture, if you look at the flares below the sun, you'll see the full eclipse effect. I used those two pairs of sunglasses as a filter for my lens. Awesome, right? HAHA!

Here it is when it was just starting, without the "filter." The sunglasses were shielding my eyes for this one. 

We totally rocked this look. ;)
