2017 Solar Eclipse

 We scaled back our original eclipse plans, but we still had a great time!  We had planned to drive up to Joplin, which was supposed to have about 95% coverage, but their forecast looked cloudier than ours, so we decided to stay put.  We picked up some snacks at the grocery store this morning.

 We went to a local park with friends where we would have a nice open view.

 We picked up some glasses at Lowe's a few weeks ago and they were on the approved lists, so hopefully we will still have our vision intact tomorrow!

 We took our colander and could see all the tiny crescents.

 You could see them in the tree shadows, too!

 Eclipse selfie!

I love this picture my friend Leah took!  We were around 90% of totality and it was really cool to see!
