Due to recent life circumstances I didn’t plan to go see today’s total eclipse. I did manage to borrow sun filter, check it out and snap some iPhone photos.

End of the world?

I am stuck in standby hell (an airline term in which you are stuck in airports) in Orange. County. I am watching the Great Final and Rayados is losing by one goal. This is impossible, right? Vucetich cannot lose a Final! Is it the end of the world? Were the Mayans right? No, that can’t be.

And then I look outside and a dragon is devouring the sun! It is the end of the world! What’s happening?!



Photo of the day #32: ISS

This is a photo from yesterday’s partial eclipse taken by Thierry Legault. In it, you can see the sun partially obscured by the moon and by none other than the International Space Station itself! Amazing timing. Click to zoom.

Lunar Eclipse

Excellent time lapse video of the lunar eclipse two nights ago. I did not see it with my own eyes, it was very cloudy in Austin.
