    Default Solar Eclipse this AM

    One of the benefits of boat ownership is the ability to get better, or more unique, views than the land-bound. Whether it's to see the stars away from the glare of land lights, view fireworks or an air show, a boat's mobility can provide some great vantage points.

    I took advantage of this benefit this morning. I just wish I could have found my solar filter.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Lovely shots of the annular eclipse low on the horizon.

    I missed it entirely - cloud and rain.
    I'd much rather lay in my bunk all freakin day lookin at Youtube videos .

    The dog got me out walking before 4am, back by 4:30, so time to drive to a high hill with mown hayfield on the east slope. Higher hills blocked the horizon but within a half hour after sunrise we got a view very like Kevin's as the horns of the sun rose over the hill shrouded with banded clouds. Neat! There were two other vehicles stopped for the view.
